Architectural Engineering Technology Associate in Applied Science
This program trains students to convert preliminary designs from architects and engineers into working drawings and specifications, as well as plan, supervise and estimate preliminary costs of construction projects.
Graduates of the Architectural Engineering Technology associate degree will be prepared with the technical skills necessary to enter careers with construction industry vendors, sub-contractors and design-build contractors, and architectural and engineering firms. Graduates will have gained knowledge in the building of residential and commercial facilities and will be equipped with the ability to create basic construction documents. Students will be prepared for CAD drafting and limited code analysis in an office environment.
Acceptable placement test score(s); plus high school diploma or GED

Students planning to transfer and pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering are strongly urged to utilize Greenville Technical College’s academic advising services. The transfer process for specific career pathways is very specific and leaves little opportunity for error in choosing classes. It is very important that students discuss curriculum and transfer requirements with their assigned academic advisor and with a transfer advisor at the four-year institution of their choice. It is most beneficial to the student if these discussions begin as soon as the choice to transfer to a four-year institution has been made.
