    Del Mar College provides training in the field of Architectural Drafting for those who wish to enter into the building industry workforce or provide the basic preliminary architectural education necessary to start on the path towards becoming an architect.

    People need places in which to live, work, play, learn, worship, meet, govern, shop, and eat.  Architects design these places, whether they are private or public; indoors or out.  Architects are licensed professionals trained in the art and science of building design who develop the concepts for structures and turn those concepts into images and plans.

    There are three main steps in becoming an architect:

    • Completing a professional degree in architecture;
    • Gaining work experience through internship; and
    • Attaining licensure by passing the Architectural Registration Exam.

    In addition to an Associates in Applied Science degree in Architectural Drafting, Del Mar College offers a pre-professional Associates of science degree in Architecture. This program is the suggested transfer plan to follow if a student wishes to seek a professional degree in the field of architecture and then go on to become an architect.  This degree offers the first two years of a professional architectural education.  Del Mar College currently has a transfer agreement with the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University.  The student planning to continue at another university should consult an adviser concerning degree requirements of the school to which transfer is intended.
