Description:Algonquin College’s Architectural Technician – Weekend program is a two-year Technician program that runs only on the weekends, designed for students who have other priorities during the work-week. Small classes and an intensive in-class component allow students to study to become an Architectural Technician while still being able to work. Classes typically run from 6pm – 9pm on Friday evening, and Saturday and Sunday classes are from 9am – 5pm at our Ottawa campus. In the Architectural Technician program students study document preparation, working drawings, construction methods and materials, building sciences, and computer-assisted design and drafting. Through a mixture of practical labs and theory, students learn to use different design software and preparation tools. The small class size of the weekend program allows students to form tight-knit working groups, developing exceptional communication, problem-solving and planning skills. This program is best suited for students who are either intrigued by the science behind building construction, or are art and design oriented. Students tend to be visual and creative thinkers, detail-oriented, problem-solvers, and thrive with change.
