Architectural Design Technology

What is 'Architectural Design Technology (ARCH)'? 

The Architectural Design Technology program combines drawing skills with architectural knowledge and powerful CAD software tools to prepare students for careers as professional architectural design technicians in the offices of architects, engineers, contractors and materials suppliers.

You will build a strong foundation of knowledge by learning classical drafting techniques, the art and language of architecture, the design process, how methods and materials shape buildings, the relationship between structural types, space usage and how architecture reflects the culture for which it is built. You will have the opportunity to apply these fundamentals, along with the latest architectural software principles and techniques, to practical lab projects.

Is it for you?

If you have a strong work ethic, the ability to work as a team member, enjoy hands-on work and the challenge of devising creative solutions to technical problems, this program is for you!

Graduates have found employment during the last few years at a salary range of $14.50 to $17.00 per hour. There are many employment opportunities for architectural design technicians in the Omaha area.
