Architectural Engineering Technology

Buildings are an exciting and vital part of our physical environment. Not only must they provide shelter, but they must do it in a way that provides safe, healthy, and comfortable environments which can be built and operated within given cost guidelines. To achieve these goals buildings have become complex structures requiring teams of specialists. An important member of the design and construction team is the Architectural Engineering Technology program graduate.
The Architectural Engineering Technology program has been developed in response to provincial needs with input from professionals associated with the design and construction of buildings. Projects and assignments are designed to be as close as possible to the type of work graduates will encounter when entering the workforce.
Every effort is made to expose the student to the latest technology. Computers are used as a tool in problem-solving in many technical courses. Microcomputers, computer-aided drafting (CAD) equipment, and a variety of architectural and engineering software packages are made available to students to carry out their projects and assignments.
Graduates completing this program are automatically eligible for membership in the Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Newfoundland and Labrador (AETTNL), as well as any similar association in Canada. 
Upon completion of this program, graduates may choose to further their education by completing a bachelor's degree in technology or engineering at one of several institutions that have articulation agreements with the College of the North Atlantic. 


This program is accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board under the mandate of the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists.
The academic credentials of graduates of accredited technology programs are recognized internationally by the signatories of the Sydney Accord.

As a graduate of the Architectural Engineering Technology program, graduates will have the knowledge and skill that will allow him/her to: 

  • Prepare complete sets of architectural drawings and related documentation for residential and commercial construction/renovation projects.
  • Have a complete understanding of the basic architectural principles in building design and detailing.
  • Apply the principles of building science and construction engineering to analyze and solve technical problems for construction projects.
  • Understand the relationship between architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and environmental building systems.
  • Apply the principles of project management to planning, scheduling, and monitoring of project development.
  • Communicate effectively with clients, contractors, other building professionals, and municipal authorities during the design and construction of the building project.
  • Apply knowledge of applicable codes, zoning bylaws, and regulations to the building project.


General education consists of Project Management Skills (theoretical and applied), Communication Skills (oral and written), Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Electrical and Magnetic Theory, Engineering Graphics, and Engineering Technology Awareness.
Specific education in various aspects (theory and principles) of the Architectural profession including building services, site supervision, project management, and construction management.
Practical education in various aspects of working drawings, architectural utility systems, and architectural graphics layouts.

The need is growing for people trained in building technology. Graduates may find employment in a variety of areas such as architectural firms, engineering firms, government departments, crown corporations, construction firms, manufacturing industries, and supply and sales companies.
Graduates with two years of progressive work experience may be eligible to receive the designation of Professional Technologist (P. Tech) upon completion of a Professional Practice and Ethics Exam.
