The two-year Architectural Technician program will prepare you to work alongside architects, designers, contractors and builders. As an architectural technician, you can participate in the design and development of the buildings that define our living and working environments using sustainable building practices.
Learning in state-of-the-art architectural studios with the most up-to-date equipment and software, you will develop a thorough knowledge of architectural drawing and technical design skills, as well as an understanding of sustainable building design and construction materials grounded in current green principles.
Courses cover computer-aided drafting and design, construction drawings and architectural presentation, including design drawing, modelling and rendering. You will also learn and apply the concepts of building science, building systems, building codes and contracts. Teamwork in a project-based learning environment is emphasized.
*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.
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.
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).
