Learning in state-of-the-art architectural studios with the most up-to-date equipment and software, you will develop a solid foundation of architectural, technical and administrative skills grounded in sustainable design. The Architectural Technology program prepares you to apply current practices of the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, including construction law and contracts, technical writing, specifications, project design and cost planning. In addition to technical design, you will also develop and apply skills in computer-aided drafting, 3D rendering and digital modeling, building codes and regulations.
In a simulated office environment, students collaborate in teams to complete projects involving site visits, proposals and designs for both new and existing facilities.
*If you enrol in the program in January, you are required to complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year in order to continue into semester 3 in the fall.
As a student in Architectural Technology, you are eligible to study abroad for one semester and/or to transfer to the Copenhagen School of Design and Technology to complete a Bachelor Degree in Architectural Technology and Construction Management upon completion of two semesters of study and an internship. The Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA) offers practice-oriented higher education for the business community in the form of both business academics and professional bachelor programs.
Part Time Study Options Part-time study options are not available for this program; however, our Continuing Education department offers evening courses and part-time certificate programs in AUTOCAD and Building/Construction Technologies. See coned.georgebrown.ca.
Your Field Study Options
A co-operative work experience component in the Architectural Technology Program (T109) will be available for a selected number of students. The intake for this co-op program is limited and applications are subject to approval by the academic department (Centre for Construction & Engineering Technologies - CCET).
Those who enter the program will complete semester 5 during the May to August semester. The co-op semester will take place from September to December. The 6th semester will be offered through a blend of in person and online studies, allowing students to graduate in April of their final year of study. It will also allow students who have part-time work to continue with it. More details are available through the department.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
