Architectural Technology, B.S.A.T.

Our four-year studio-based architectural technology program gives you exposure to design integrity and provides the skills and knowledge to building technology, planning, materials sourcing, budgeting, legal and regulatory compliance, and onsite supervision of construction projects.

During your first two years, you will study the foundations of architectural history and building construction while developing expertise in design analysis, drafting, and 3-D design skills. From there, you may choose to concentrate on a specific field such as construction management.

During your third and fourth years, you will work intensively toward completion of a capstone project incorporating all aspects of a building’s design and architectural technology. Our B.S.A.T program helps prepare you for New York State licensure and meets the requirements for acceptance into an undergraduate or graduate first professional degree program in architecture.
