AAS Degree - Code #0443
The architectural engineering technology program offers a concentration of courses in architectural design and graphic communication as well as material in related areas such as structures, mechanical systems, professional practice, and construction technology.
It is the intent of the program to expose students to a broad range of skills and basic data relevant to the building process. This broad exposure gives students the ability to be conversant with and/or seek employment with all related professions within the architectural field. Students are required during the two years of study to apply the skills or background knowledge gained in these “exposure” courses to actual problem-solving situations. This application develops a better understanding of the complexity, interrelationships, and proper sequence of the process of building.
As a response to the impact of computers on all areas of the architecture profession, a series of computer courses has been developed which introduces the student to a variety of 2D & 3D building information modeling and animation applications.
The program places graduates as technicians in the architecture professions. However, each year some students transfer into baccalaureate or professional degree programs in architecture and related fields.
A laptop computer is required for students entering the architectural engineering technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.
PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Alfred State architectural engineering technology graduates may enter directly into either the architectural technology BS or technology management BBA degree program. Please note that a minimum combined GPA of 3.0 is required in Alfred State studio courses (ARCH 1184, ARCH 2394, ARCH 3104, and ARCH 4304) to guarantee admission into ARCH 5306 - Design Studio 3. A portfolio review is required of all continuing students not meeting this requirement.
Graduates may go directly into the work force or transfer to professional or pre-professional degree programs at Alfred State or other institutions. Transfer is contingent on program and institution. Graduates have transferred to various schools of architecture and engineering in the United States.
Employment and transfer rate of 100 percent – 9 percent are employed; 91 percent transferred to continue their education.
