Great reasons to choose the NHTI's Architectural Engineering Technology (AET) Program

  • Architectural Engineering Technology Program established in 1973
  • Accredited by the ETAC Commission of ABET, www.abet.org
  • Associate in Science in Engineering Technology Degree
  • Lecture and laboratory hands on experience with small classes
  • Exciting job opportunities at graduation
  • Multiple career paths for continued education
  • First two years of a four year education
  • Excellent value
  • Day and evening classes

The AET program combines architecture and engineering theory with a solid foundation in mathematics and science. Students in the program study the architectural design process of a variety of building types and develop skills in sketching and computer aided drawing. Students learn structural and environmental systems theory, methods of construction, statics and strength of building materials, surveying and professional practices. A 3-year version of this program is available. Contact the Department Head for details.

Graduates of the program are employed with architectural and engineering firms, contractors, surveyors, and in various governmental agencies.

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

  1. At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;
  2. It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.

Internship Considerations

NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
