The Department of Architecture and Design offers a five-year professional Bachelor of Architecture degree, a Bachelor of Science degree in architectural technology, and an Associate in Applied Science degree in architectural technology. These degrees are designed to serve the varying needs within the profession of architecture. The Associate of Applied Science degree in interior design provides graduates with basic knowledge and skills for entry-level positions in the interior design discipline.


The Architecture and Design Department at Alfred State prepares graduates for immediate employment or continued educational opportunities in a range of design and technology-related disciplines. The department provides quality technical education that integrates theory and practice with a foundation in the arts and sciences.


The Architecture and Design Department offers all students in the department the use of extensive laboratory facilities that enhance each student’s learning experience as it relates to his/her chosen program.

Architectural Studios - Junior and senior baccalaureate-level students have access 24 hours per day to three studios. These rooms in the Engineering Technology Building contain 15 advanced computer visualization workstations. Peripheral devices such as scanners, digital cameras, and large format color plotters are readily available. A school-wide 3-D Printing Fabrication Laboratory is in preparation.

Interior Design Studios - First- and second-year students have access 24 hours per day to four studios. Each has 20 work stations and are laptop ready (either hard-wired or with access to the campus wireless network). Students also have access to a model shop, plotter room, and materials library.

Please note: All entering students in both the architecture and interior design programs are required to purchase a laptop computer. The laptop enables students to have access to program-specific software via the wireless network on campus.
