On average, licensed architects have a higher earning potential than unlicensed architects. More than half of architecture firms offer higher salaries to licensed architects (<a href="https://www.aia.org/resources/8066-aia-compensation-report?utm_source=Archinect&amp;utm_campaign=aresponsorpost032017&amp;utm_medium=link&amp;utm_term=direct&amp;utm_content=compreport" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">AIA 2015 compensation report</a>).</p><p><a href="https://ppi2pass.com/are-resource-hub?utm_source=Archinect&amp;utm_campaign=aresponsorpost032017&amp;utm_medium=banner1500x700&amp;utm_term=direct&amp;utm_content=secondpoint" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/tt/ttmlhgpb3j8zor64.jpg"></a></p><p><strong>2. Move from doer to leader</strong></p><p>Why wait for the future to define you when you can take control of your own future? In many states, only licensed architects can design buildings over three stories or commercial buildings. As a licensed architect, you'll be able to choose the type of projects you work on and firms that you join.

But you discovered a small hitch yesterday: the MEP engineers referred to an old version of the structural model while modifying the duct work. Luckily, the team spotted and resolved the issue before it created serious problems or caused more than a couple hours of rework. Not a big deal, but it could have led to the kind of design error that 21% of architects consider to be a top cause of uncertainty and potential issues on projects. Working in the cloud delivers the power to prevent those kinds of errors.</p><p>According to the Construction Industry Council, cloud computing is on track to become the leading way firms store and share design models. That&rsquo;s because when design teams work in the cloud, they get anytime, anywhere access to the latest design information.

Advanced design studios focused on adaptive reuse are central to both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
