Online courses are classes designed specifically for the internet. They are often the same as their classroom-based equivalents with the exception of being conducted over the web.
What is an online course in architecture? Architecture courses can take many formats, and, from introductory classes to professional certificates for degree holders, options are available at nearly every skill level. An online baccalaureate course may involve science classes on physical properties of building materials or humanities classes examining the history of theater design. An international green buildings standards test preparation course for professionals might cover how to prepare sites and plans for inspection. Architecture courses may last anywhere from one week for a short test prep course to five years for an online bachelor's degree in architecture.
Taking an online course in architecture is often a good way for architects pursue continuing education and potentially increase their value to employers and clients. Undergraduates taking an online course can establish the basis needed to start a career designing various types of engineered spaces.
Online courses in architecture have different costs depending on the structure and desired outcomes. Contact the institution for tuition, and make sure to check for any other materials needed, such as software or texts.
In addition to companies that focus solely on architecture, civil engineering firms and large corporations often have job openings for architects. An architect at the junior level might be required to work directly with drafting and planning software, moving from conceptual representations of a project to workable building plans. Experienced project managers and senior architects need to have all the technical skills of their juniors as well as the ability to interpret client requests and communicate schedules and plans to all stakeholders in a project.
