What these programs share is a close relation
with the environment: the natural environment
as surveyed and interpreted by geospatial
technologists, and the built environment
visualized by architectural drafting and
brought into existence under the supervision of
construction management professionals.

All three are intensively involved with the use
of computer graphics and design. Geospatial
technology and construction management often
include outdoor activities. Graduates of any of
the programs will have career opportunities in
“green” industries that make a significant positive
impact on the planet.

If you enjoy designing and building things,
solving problems and working with computers,
design technologies could be the career pathway
you’ve been looking for! To learn more about
the possibilities, talk to an advisor in the School
of Applied Technologies or the Academic
Advisement and Career Development office.
