|Description:||Centennial College's Architectural Technology program will prepare you for a variety of careers in the building industry. For example, as an employee of an architectural firm, where you will apply your technical knowledge and skills to create building designs, analyze building code requirements, prepare construction drawings, and carry out contract administration tasks during the construction phase. Or you may offer building design and drawing services directly to clients on small building projects, where permitted by legislation.
This diploma program places a strong emphasis on energy-efficient, sustainable design and construction strategies, and protecting the environment. During this program, you will learn to use state-of-the-art computer technology, as well as prepare designs and construction drawings for residential, industrial, commercial, and institutional buildings. You will also learn about building materials, construction methods, structural design, mechanical and electrical services, building codes and zoning by-laws, contracts, specifications, and the business environment for providing design and construction services.
This course will be offered as a hybrid model, meaning at least one course requires you to come onto campus to complete lab work. For some hybrid programs, the fall semester can be completed online if you cannot travel to Canada.
