Page Content

Architectural Engineering Technology Program Educational Objectives:
Graduates will possess the necessary skills;
  • critical thinking;
  • discipline; and
  • work ethic to enter the A/E/C industry fully capable of performing entry-level tasks consistent with the expectations of employers.
PROGRAM CRITERIA - Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of associate degree programs will, to the extent required to meet Program Educational Objectives:

  • a.   employ concepts of architectural theory and design in a design environment;
  • b.   utilize instruments, methods, software, and techniques that are appropriate to produce A/E documents and presentations;
  • c.   utilize measuring methods that are appropriate for field, office, or laboratory;
  • d.   apply fundamental computational methods and elementary analytical techniques in sub-disciplines related to architectural engineering;

In addition graduates if baccalaureate degree programs will, to the extent required to meet Program Educational Objectives:

  • e. create, utilize, and present design, construction, and operations documents;
  • f. perform economic analyses and cost estimates related to design, construction, and maintenance of building systems;
  • g. select appropriate materials and practices for building construction;
  • h. apply principles of construction law and ethics in architectural practice, and;
  • i. perform standard analysis and design in at least one recognized technical specialty within architectural engineering technology that is appropriate to the goals of the program.


For baccalaureate degree programs, these student outcomes must include, but are not limited to, the following learned capabilities:

  • a. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  • b. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  • c. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  • d. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  • e. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  • f. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  • g. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • h. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  • i. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  • j. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  • k. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
