Students endeavor to develop industry terminology and become familiar with construction materials and construction and deconstruction processes. Participants study environmental and legal regulations and analyze sustainable design practices in building. In training, students conduct research methods to locate building codes and bidding information for residential and commercial settings.

Students also participate in project and contract management, construction oversight, and contract negotiating.  Completing an architectural technology degree at Central Piedmont prepares students for career opportunities in architectural, engineering, construction, residential design, and trade professions. Our graduates also work in housing associations, facility management, commercial companies, and government as architectural technologists/technicians.
