Architects created every building and home you see. They do more than that however, they plan whole cities, create change in every urban environment, and are held in the highest esteem in all societies. The work is not easy, but if you love to build, then architecture is for you. Architecture is a discipline that combines engineering and art. It’s not just the building they have to understand, it’s also the plumbing, electric, elevators, and fire hazards and everything else. This is a not a discipline for the timid.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
