College Presentation 2 Architect/Architecture While architecture is grounded in science, its heart is in the arts. Well-designed buildings not only serve the people who use them. They are also works of art that help define the town or city in which they stand.

As an architecture major, you'll learn how to work with others to imagine buildings, from straw-bale houses to the tallest skyscrapers. And with the technical know-how you pick up in such classes as architectural engineering and construction materials, you'll know just what needs to be done to bring them to life.

A creative problem solver. Because architects never work alone, it also helps to be good at working with other people -- so start building teamwork skills now. Before any building is constructed, it exists in the mind’s eye of an architect. Architects design buildings in which people work, worship, play, and conduct the countless other activities of their lives.

Consider the building you’re in right now. Where are the windows placed? What materials were used to construct the building? How does the structure sit on the site it occupies? What style of architecture is used? And how do people use the building? The building’s architect once considered all these same questions.

Architecture is a popular career choice, and you should expect competition when it's time to look for work. Landing that first job can be difficult, especially at firms with the best reputations.

One trend that will affect architects is the growing need for healthcare facilities and retirement communities, as baby boomers begin to retire. Also, as the population increases and buildings age, schools and universities will look to renovate and add to their campuses. By: Eric
