Architecture and Engineering Technology

Welcome to  FAMU’s Architecture Engineering Technology Community! 

About Architecture and Engineering Technology:

Architecture includes instruction in architectural design, history, and theory; building structures and environmental systems; project and site planning; construction; professional responsibilities and standards; and related cultural, social, economic, and environmental issues. It also prepares students for the independent professional practice of architecture and to research various aspects of the field. Engineering Technology applies basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of architects, engineers, and planners engaged in designing and developing buildings, urban complexes, and related systems. 

What does Professional Development (PD) look like for Architecture and Engineering Technology:

ARCHITECTURE

Students of architecture must be able to conceptualize and understand spatial relations and be detail-oriented. Also, students will develop creativity, analytical skills, and a sense of quality. Architecture students take many art and photography classes but not mechanical drawing classes. Oral and written communication skills are important, particularly when working with clients, construction crews, or government officials. Good writing skills are valuable for developing architectural proposals. Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) and other computer technologies are prevalent, so architecture majors develop as many computer skills as possible. The job market for architects varies with changes in the economy as demand is often tied to the level of construction.

ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY

Students of engineering technology receive instruction in design testing procedures, building site analysis, model building and computer graphics, engineering drawing, structural systems testing, analysis of prototype mechanical and interior systems, test equipment operation and maintenance, and report preparation.
