Overview

This Fast-track program allows qualified architecture degree holders (including those from universities abroad) to gain direct admission into Semester 3 of the three-year Architectural Technology program and receive their diploma in four academic semesters. It’s primarily aimed at internationally-trained professionals seeking knowledge of North American construction practices and language.

You’ll learn to use state-of-the-art computer technology to prepare designs, construction drawings, specifications and reports to communicate with clients, builders and approval authorities. Activities will include preparing drawings for commercial, institutional, complex and multi-use buildings. You’ll also be introduced to building materials, construction methods, structural design, mechanical and electrical services, building codes, contracts, specifications, and the business environment for providing design and construction.

Co-op Option

The co-op option will allow you to gain hands-on experience while you complete two co-op work terms as an employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.

To participate in this co-op option, you must complete an application process in the first semester. If academically qualified, you may be admitted to the co-op program.

When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
