The architecture program, which leads to the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Architectural Engineering Technology (AET), prepares students for entry-level employment in private sector architectural, consulting engineering, and construction firms, and related governmental agencies. The AAS degree in the AET program also satisfies the first two years of the 4 year Bachelor of Science in Architecture/1.5 year Master in Architecture degree programs at UDC, and similar degree programs at other institutions.

- Illustrate concepts of architectural theories in a design environment.
- Utilize modern instruments, methods and techniques to produce documents Architectural Engineering and presentations.
- Conduct standardized field and laboratory testing on construction materials.
- Utilize modern instruments and research techniques for site development and building layout.
- Identify forces and stresses in elementary structural systems.
- Estimate material quantities for technical projects.
- Utilize codes, contracts and specifications in design, construction and inspection activities.
