Overview

Architects, therefore, must be able to understand the needs and desires of the people who will inhabit and use their creations and effectively synthesize the complex structural, mechanical, constructional components, and cultural references that influence the design of a building. As designers, they must possess creative and aesthetic skills as well as technical knowledge, collaborative ability, and problem-solving agility.

The Architecture program, offered by University of Nebraska-Lincoln, seeks to increase students’ desire to learn and to develop a capacity for design-thinking and sound, critical judgment while simultaneously developing their creative potential. 

Architecture students develop the foundation skills and abilities to create complex built environments. In addition, they confront technical problems, address human needs, and resolve esthetic concerns. Confronting these issues requires a vision for the future that includes zero energy building technologies and more integrated design and building delivery models. 

Career Opportunities

  • While the typical goal of pursing a degree in Architecture is to become a licensed architect, design is an increasingly broad arena in our culture. 
  • An architectural education prepares students to be creative and adaptable in roles from the technical to the esthetic. 
  • Many of our students continue with dual majors in business, engineering, landscape, or community and regional planning.
