Architectural Engineering Technology  

Students seek degrees in Architectural Engineering Technology to learn the concepts and skills of drafting design and engineering.   Architectural engineering combines all aspects of the building design and construction, involving mechanical, electrical and structural blueprints, calculations, and other notions of mathematical precision. 

Most people with architectural engineering technology knowledge have mastered the basics of architectural computer aided design along with building information modeling.  Independence Community College offers the program as an Associate of Applied Science Degree and offers students small class sizes that allow for one-on-one assistance when needed.  

The curriculum is designed to accommodate the student planning to transfer to a university.   Courses of study can be individually tailored to meet student and employer needs.
