The Architectural Technology program helps students develop skills applicable in a variety of Built Environment professions, including architectural, engineering and design practices, contracting firms, and material suppliers. Building Information modeling (BIM) and Integrated Project design (IPD) are core principles taught throughout the curriculum, with Autodesk Revit being the primary BIM tool. Environmental responsibility is emphasized, with students taking a USGBC LEED exam prep course. Curriculum tracks are available for both building technology and building design.
Graduates are employed as drafters for architectural firms, inspectors and project managers in the construction industry. Many opportunities exist in the building materials and assemblies sales and supply area.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
