Architectural Technology, B.S. – Construction Management Concentration

Accelerate your career in the construction industry and become a sought-after employee with increased specialization and technological knowledge in the built environment.

What You’ll Learn

The Architectural Technology, B.S. program with a concentration in Construction Management incorporates classes in architectural design, building technology, environmental systems, and project management using advanced software and tools. You'll focus on the latest technologies in contemporary construction practice and discover novel ways to use software to resolve design issues.

After completing foundational courses in your first two years, including architectural history and building construction, design analysis, drafting, and 3-D design skills, you’ll gain critical experience through a culminating capstone project using Building Information Modeling (BIM) in analyzing and assessing design and technology integrations, simulating the workings of a contemporary architecture office.

Unique in the region, the Architectural Technology, B.S.A.T - Construction Management shares its curriculum with New York Tech’s NAAB-accredited Architecture, B.Arch. program, giving you a foundation that is career-oriented, creatively focused, and committed to sustainable design practices.

You’ll also participate in our extensive externship program, working competitive placements in architecture firms, construction companies, real estate management, architectural engineering, and visualization companies. Many students are even hired-on after graduation.

For those interested in even greater career preparation, the School of Architecture and Design offers an accelerated path to the Master of Architecture professional degree for undergraduate students who wish to begin their graduate work during the final two years of study for the B.S.
