A PROGRAM FOR ARCHITECTURAL TECHNICIAN'S TRAINING.
TERNSTROM, CLINTON C.; AND OTHERS
ARCHITECTURAL TECHNICIANS TRANSLATE DESIGN AND SYSTEMS SOLUTIONS INTO GRAPHIC AND WRITTEN FORM AND ASSIST IN RENDERING ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES. IN 1966, A STUDY GROUP FROM THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS FOUND THAT EXISTING 2-YEAR PROGRAMS WERE INADEQUATE, FALLING INTO ONE OF TWO CATEGORIES--(1) DRAFTING COURSES WHICH LACKED BREADTH AND FAILED TO PROVIDE BACKGROUND IN MATHEMATICS, APPLIED SCIENCE, AND MODERN BUILDING TECHNIQUES, OR (2) PROGRAMS SIMILAR TO THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF ORTHODOX PREPROFESSIONAL OFFERINGS, WITH INADEQUATE TECHNICAL EMPHASIS AND LITTLE PREPARATION FOR IMMEDIATE EMPLOYMENT. THE JUNIOR COLLEGE IS PARTICULARLY SUITED FOR OFFERING PROPOSED PROGRAMS IN THREE SEQUENCES--(1) DRAFTING, SPECIFICATIONS, AND ESTIMATING, (2) GRAPHIC ARTS, MODELS, AND REPRODUCTION, AND (3) ADMINISTRATION, DATA PROCESSING, AND INFORMATION. IN THIS PROGRAM DESCRIPTION, ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO CURRICULUM, STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND CONTINUING EDUCATION. (WO)
