Architectural Technologies is for the person who wants to:​

You could work with architects; structural, mechanical and electrical engineers; contractors, subcontractors and building equipment and material suppliers. Students visit construction sites to observe actual construction practices and tour architectural offices.

This program is on our Ankeny Campus with select classes offered on other campuses. You may receive a Diploma and/or an Associates degree.​​​
