Education 

Southern Polytechnic State University, Marietta, GA, US, Architectural Engineering Technology (AET)

The primary goal of the AET bachelor degree program was concerned with the application of proven techniques as practiced by the architectural, construction, and engineering professions. The program had two majors: Design and Construction. The emphasis for both of those was on the development of working drawings. I majored in Design which was geared towards preparation for work in the architectural field.

The Architectural Engineering Technology degree, was subsequently replaced by a five year Bachelor Of Architecture degree program.
