The Blinn College District Architecture Program focuses on design as the fundamental element of the architectural discipline. We teach solid fundamentals through design, drawing, history and related courses.
Designed to give students a foundation in architecture and design, the program includes rigorous introductory courses in AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Adobe Photoshop, hand drafting, and perspective drawing. With small class sizes, students receive personalized instruction from program faculty and are challenged with projects and presentations compatible with curricula at four-year institutions.
Students learn to blend creativity and practicality for increased proficiency in design, engineering, and project management. Courses are designed for a two-year Associate of Arts in architecture or for transfer to a university.
Architecture is expected to have 18,600 new job openings in the United States by 2022 and is ranked the third best creative job by U.S. News and World Report. Students can expect to earn around $73,090 annually after earning an advanced degree.
