Landscape architects work with other professionals – architects, engineers, planners, interior designers, builders, contractors, developers, real estate brokers and marketers. They interact with elected and appointed public officials. They have to be able to understand the needs of all these groups and they have to be able to communicate in a variety of media.

Landscape architecture exists at the intersection of art and science. Good landscape architecture projects bring people together by creating places that are sustainable and beautiful. They provide recreation, solve environmental problems, increase property values, improve transportation alternatives and build communities.

Landscape architects design the settings in which people spend their lives every day. Their work is important because it determines the most basic elements of everyone’s experience of their world.


Graduates from Landscape Architecture from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University are prepared to become leaders in the field and are provided with theoretical, technical and life skills necessary to address complex and consistent changes with respect to ecological and social challenges associated with design, conservation and landscape management.
