Architectural Technology


In the School of Architectural Technology, we excel at teaching visualization and design, and give students a sound education in design development, graphic communication, legislation, building science and structure.

Graduates from Sheridan’s two-year Architectural Technician program and three-year Architectural Technology diploma enter the workforce with two powerful competitive advantages: a nationally recognized credential and a superior, industry-approved education.


Veldi Chair

In a collaborative effort between Matthew Reeve of the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology (FAST) and the Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design (FAAD), a metal frame chair was conceived, designed and produced. Ergonomic tools were used for rationalizing the height of both the seat and back of the chair, and lots was learned about advantages and limitations of designing with metal.

We hope this is just one of many steps along the collaboration continuum between FAST and FAAD.

Skills Ontario Competition 2017

Congratulations to all Sheridan participants at the 2017 Skills Ontario competition last week. You not only represented Sheridan, you raised the bar for what can be accomplished.

Congratulations to all our participants and award winners and good luck in the next stage of the Skills Competitions.

Sheridan Students showcase their work at the AATO General Meeting

The Association of Architectural Technologists in Ontario (AATO) Annual General Meeting (AGM) showcased the exemplary project work of Sheridan's Architectural Technology/Technician students.

We are proud of our student talent and it's no surprise that much of the work completed by our scholars often receives industry-wide recognition. The AGM took place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Vaughan and bought together some of the most creative minds in the architectural profession.

2017 Architectural Technology Charette

HMC B-wing will experience its first Architectural Technology Design Charette. On Tuesday, March 21st, the School of Architectural Technology will be fully engaged in an all-school design charette. Arch Tech students, sign up for a team outside B420 during the week of March 13th. Not only do bragging rights accompany the winning projects, you could be entered to win court-side Raptors tickets.
