Course Information

Architectural Technology is the third year of an Ontario College Advanced Diploma program that prepares you for a career in the architectural profession and the construction industry. The program gives you the credentials, the knowledge and the skills necessary to further define your career. Graduates of the two-year Architectural Technician Ontario College Diploma program may consider taking this third year to build on their previous studies.

In the Architectural Technology program, you focus on commercial construction and large buildings, as defined in the Ontario Building Code. You participate in a team project that brings together all facets of building construction, including:

  • design and technical resolution with the integration of building and material detailing

  • structural and mechanical layout design for a commercial building assembly

Revit Architecture is used to execute the design and technical resolution for the project.

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op version of the program are subject to availability.

Graduates of this program may find work with:

  • architects` offices

  • contractors in multiple sectors

  • engineering offices

  • building materials sales representatives

  • municipal offices such as the City of Ottawa

  • federal and provincial agencies dealing with construction

  • drafting service offices using AutoCAD and Revit

  • real estate and facilities management companies

  • companies that provide construction, maintenance, and planning services

Graduates may also consider applying for advanced standing in several Algonquin College programs such as the Bachelor of Building Science Degree program, the Green Architecture Ontario College Graduate Certificate program or the Building Information Modeling - Lifecycle Management (BIM-LM) Ontario College Graduate Certificate program.
