Architectural Technology (AAS)

Architecture Student Studying Plans

The A.A.S. in Architectural Technology is designed to prepare you for direct employment in architecture and related fields, or for transfer to a bachelors degree program. Equal emphasis is placed on the preparation of detailed residential and commercial construction drawings; on the creative process of rendering and designing buildings; and on the understanding of building methods, materials, structure, and mechanical systems. The drawing instruction, in turn, is equally divided between conventional design/drafting media and computer-generated design and drafting.

SUNY Delhi also offers a B.T. in Architectural Design and Building >
