This program prepares students for employment as architectural technicians who work with and are supervised by an architect.  They may prepare technical and presentation drawings, draft copies of specifications and cost estimates, revise plans, trace details from various sources, operate printing machines, and assemble prints and other documents for projects.  Landscape architects, industrial designers, interior designers, and engineers also employ architectural technicians.

To earn a certificate of achievement, students must complete each course used to meet a certificate requirement with a "C" grade or higher.  Required courses are available in the day, and some are also offered in the evening.
