While the two-year AAS degree in architectural technology offers a broad range of skills this four year Architectural Technology program at Alfred State College SUNY College of Technology continues the course of study, by combining a wholistic perspective of the built environment with an applied technical knowledge of construction systems and materials acquired throughout a four-year studio sequence.
All architecture degree programs share course work across the first two years, while the BS and BArch have some shared course work in the third and fourth years. This alignment demands the AAS and BS in architectural technology are required to meet the same NAAB "Student Criteria” and “Program Criteria” that apply to the BArch program. The BArch program is the only fully-accredited undergraduate first professional architecture degree program in the SUNY system.
