The AAS degree offers a broad range of skills and basic data relevant to the building process. The BS furthers this by combining a philosophic and artistic perspective of building design with an applied technical knowledge of construction systems and materials. In addition, the world class STAR Center and Center for Architecture and Remote Sensing (CARS) at Alfred State provide opportunities for students to work with cutting-edge technology and software on real-world projects with actual clients. Architectural technology students also have the opportunity to study abroad in Sorrento, Italy.
Architectural technology is an emerging field and supports the design and practice of architecture. As such, the profession is expected to grow steadily along with the architecture profession, especially in New York State.
Students develop skills and know-how to support licensed architects and can prepare for additional study to earn licensure. -Dr. Alex Bitterman, Dept. Chair, Architecture and Design
"My Alfred State architectural technology degree prepared me for professional success and helped me to effortlessly transition from school to work." -Tyler Fox, '14, JM2 Architecture New York
