Architectural Engineering Technology A.S.

With an A.S. in Architectural Engineering Technology from Vermont State University, you will learn the technical side of architecture, design, and the construction process for a career in helping to shape our built environment.

You will develop a broad knowledge of the aesthetic design, space planning, materials, methods, heating, cooling, lighting and structural systems of modern construction. You’ll also acquire practical skills in drafting, computer-aided design (CAD), building information modeling (BIM) team-based design processes, and project management.

Upon graduation, you will be ready to enter the field in a wide range of positions working with architects and engineers, contractors, project managers, drafters, and surveyors. Alternatively, you may continue to build your professional skills by continuing directly on to the Vermont State Bachelor of Architectural Engineering Technology degree or by applying for bachelor’s degree programs at other architecture or engineering universities.
