***Electives approved by the department Architectural and Building Engineering Technology Architectural and Building Engineering Technology Graduates of this program are prepared for a wide range of construction industry careers at the technical and design support level. Graduates typically fill positions with architects, engineers, and building contractors and provide all levels of support to the building industry in manufacturing, sale, and governmental administration. Graduates of the program are also prepared to advance to bachelor degree programs in architecture or engineering.

Graduation from the program at the associate’s level (2 or 3 year) allows students an ideal opportunity to make an informed decision relative to their career paths. This “decision platform” offered to students completing their associate’s degree is one of the program’s greatest strengths.

Students may continue on into a Bachelor of Science degree program in Architectural Engineering Technology, Sustainable Design & Technology, or Business Technology & Management. Some program graduates transfer to other schools of architecture or engineering to continue working toward a bachelor’s or other degree in these fields.

Educational objectives for students with an Associate of Applied Science in Architectural

and Building Engineering Technology that are exercised during their workforce careers include:

• Graphic communication skills: Graduates are able to use freehand sketches, board drafting, presentation graphics, and CADD as tools for design and communication.

• Communication skills: Graduates are able to communicate technical information in writing, speaking, listening, and interpersonal skills to work effectively as part of a team and to interact effectively with clients, the public, and others.

• Technical skills: Graduates will understand residential and commercial building systems, materials, and regulations; apply that knowledge to site layout and material estimating; and use appropriate computer applications.

• Architectural design: Graduates demonstrate knowledge of historical precedents and aesthetics and use design principles (including energy use, conservation, and sustainability concepts) as part of a process to create workable building designs.

• Engineering design: Graduates understand design principles and apply procedures in the design of building engineering systems in the areas of building structures, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and lighting with emphasis on energy use, conservation, and sustainability concepts.

The program is accredited by the Technology Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The minimum number of credits required for a degree is 70.

–  –  –

*Students who do not place into ENG 1060 or 1061 may take up to three terms to complete English Composition (see English Requirements, page 99).This may require summer courses or additional terms to complete the degree.

** Students must complete a minimum of one Arts and Humanities (AH) and one Social Science (SS) elective.

*** Choose from MAT 2532 - Calculus II, CET 2110 - Mechanics of Soils, LAH 2011 - Introduction to Landscape Design, ARC 2022 - Architectural CAD II, or ARC 3010 - Design Systems Integration. Elective availability depends on scheduling.

Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering Technology Graduates of this bachelor’s program receive broad-based preparation for numerous career opportunities in the building design and construction industries. Education in this area provides the opportunity for excellent salaries and the satisfaction of seeing creative designs become reality. Within the scope of the discipline fall such diverse areas as structural engineering; HVAC design; electrical and lighting design; plumbing and fire protection; construction management;

and facilities management.

Students may enroll as freshman candidates for the bachelor’s degree or may choose to enroll first as associate’s degree candidates and defer a decision on bachelor’s candidacy until the second year. Transfer students from other two- and four-year architecture and engineering programs are encouraged to apply.

The bachelor’s program builds on the foundation established in the associate’s program in structures, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and integrated design. The scope of the curriculum is also extended to include such fields as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, electrical circuits, lighting systems, AE management, and advanced math. Advanced computer applications are included.

Graduates are allowed to sit for the Fundamentals of Engineering examination in most states and, after meeting state requirements for appropriate work experience, may also be examined for the Professional Engineer designation.

Educational objectives for graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering Technology that are demonstrated during their workforce careers (in addition to all of the

outcomes included in the associate’s program) include:

• Technical design: Graduates are able to design and integrate complex systems into the building form, emphasizing human comfort and resource conservation, incorporating expertise in a single engineering discipline.





• Communication skills: Graduates use computer-aided design and drafting to communicate complex building systems and exhibit expanded oral presentation skills to effectively explain technical designs. Graduates have also improved their interpersonal skills for team efforts and for interacting with clients, the public, and others.

• Structural engineering design: Graduates use principles and procedures to analyze and design structures in steel, concrete, and other materials while addressing sustainability issues.

• Mechanical engineering design (HVAC and plumbing systems): Graduates use principles and procedures to analyze and design building mechanical systems, including the use of energy conservation and sustainability concepts.

• Electrical and lighting engineering design: Graduates use principles and procedures to analyze and design energy efficient building electrical and lighting systems.

• Engineering management: Graduates understand and apply the principles of management for engineering business and project administration.

Architectural and Building Engineering Technology The program is accredited by the Technology Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The minimum credits required for graduation is 130.

*Students who do not place into ENG 1060 or 1061 may take up to three terms to complete English Composition (see English Requirements, page 99. This may require summer courses or additional terms to complete the degree.

**Students must complete a minimum of four Arts and Humanities (AH) and Social Science (SS) electives, with at least one at the 3XXX level.

***Choose from CET 2020 - Hydraulics & Drainage, MAT 2021 – Statistics, CET 2110 - Mechanics of Soils (spring), or others with permission of department. Availability depends on scheduling. Students must complete a minimum of one technical elective. Electives approved by the department.

Automotive Technology

Automotive Technology Graduates of this program will have the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain, diagnose, and repair mechanical and electronic systems in any automobile or light/medium-duty truck. The comprehensive nature of the program ensures that graduates are prepared to solve problems on vehicles regardless of origin. The combination of technical knowledge, program philosophy, and emphasis on lifelong learning prepares the Vermont Tech Automotive Technology graduate with a solid foundation for success in all aspects of the automotive technology profession.

Throughout the curriculum, faculty and staff reinforce the principles of professional ethics, critical thinking, and problem solving as they are applied to the workplace. Students are also introduced to basic business management practices.

Student learning outcomes for the Associate of Applied Science in Automotive Technology

include:

Understanding the theory of operation, plus diagnostic and service procedures of engines; brakes;

suspension and steering systems; electrical and electronic systems; drive-train systems; engine performance; advanced technology vehicles; automatic transmissions; and automotive heating and air-conditioning systems.
