The FAMU School of Architecture is now the School of Architecture & Engineering Technology, and is organized into two Divisions, a Division of Architecture and a Division of Engineering Technology.
The Division of Architecture is composed of one program - architecture. The Division of Architecture offers two non-professional degrees. At the undergraduate level, a 4-year, 120-hour Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (BS)is offered. The BS is the pre-requisite degree for entry into the graduate and/or professional programs in the Division of Architecture. At the graudate level, the non-professional collaborative Master of Science in Architecture with a major in Facilities Mangement is offered.
Two National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) professionally-accredited degrees are offered. At the undergraduate level, a 5-year, 150-hour Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) is offered. The B.Arch. requires a minimum of one year of study beyond the pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree at FAMU or equivalent. For highly qualified practitioners, a two-year commuter option exists. At the graduate level, a Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) is offered. The M.Arch. requires a minimum of two years of study beyond the pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree at FAMU or equivalent. A traditional (4 2) path is ideally suited for candidates with the FAMU BS in Architectural Studies or equivalent. A 3-1/2 year path exists for students with an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution in any discipline. The professionally accredited B.Arch. and M.Arch. degrees are structured to educate those who aspire to architectural registration/licensure.
The Division of Engineering Technology is composed of two Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc., (ETAC-ABET) accredited Engineering Technology programs - construction engineering technology and electronic engineering technology. The Division of Engineering Technology offers the Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology and the Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology.
