The first 2 years of the technology program are common to the Architectural Technician program. These two years are followed by an additional year of study concentrating on large buildings.
The Architectural Technology curriculum at Algonquin College emphasizes an in-depth understanding of the many facets of building and construction including residential and commercial building envelope design, working drawings, construction documentation, construction methods and materials and computer-assisted design and drafting. In their final year students participate in a team project aimed at reconciling the many considerations in designing a building, including aesthetic and technical resolution.
This program offers two optional cooperative education (Co-op) Work Terms. Qualified students with a minimum GPA of 2.7 have the opportunity to apply for paid co-op employment to gain work experience and industry connections. *See Additional Information for details.
