Transcript of Architecture & Construction

Period: 2
Pathways and Occupations
The three pathways and occupations in Architecture and Construction are Design/Pre-Construction, Construction, and Maintenance/Operations.
How "concrete" is the safety of this job?
There is both a lot of safety and a lot of risk at the same time. Jobs in this cluster are expected to be at their peak in 2020, making it a very easy career to be comfortable in. However, revenue and salary depend on the skills of the entire
company or firm, as well
as advertising. It is very
risky in that regard.
Jobs in this Cluster: Architect
Architecture has one of the highest predicted growth rates for this decade. It is a very artistically abstract field, and it typically takes years to complete one job. That being said,
architects work on
multiple projects at the
same time, and larger
firms (20+ employees)
have separate groups
that work different
projects
Jobs in this Cluster:
Stonemason
Stonemasonry requires years of practice and training, as it is not only a career, but an art form. It also requires knowledge in mathematics and physics,
as well as a lot of
physical strength.
What it takes to be an Architect
College
Licensing
Whenever an architect wants to build in a state, they must have passed the state-mandated test in order to get their license. Each state has a different test because each state has different needs.
Internships
To become a licensed architect, you need to undergo a total of 3 years of internship. You can start your three years before you even go to college, or you can get employed in a work-study program as well.
Salary
What it takes to be a Stonemason
Apprenticeship
Stonemasons in training must go through a 3 to 4 year apprenticeship and must complete at least 144 hours of technical instruction and 2000 hours of paid on-the-job training.
Education/college
Some colleges offer a one year program.
Requirements
Must be at least 18 years old.
A high school degree or an equivalent
Physically able to work
Salary
Fields of Study you should be interested in
In high school and college, it is recommended that one takes creative and speaking-style courses, like English, Art and Drafting. Hands on classes, or at least a hobby in that field, are advised, and technical and logical thinking classes like Calculus and Physics are a must.

Other Information
Most occupations in this field must pay attention to how well their creations reflect the environment they were created in. Continuing the organic or streamline expression of a structure's surroundings is crucial in the success of this field.
Organic
Organic simply refers to a more natural look, like round shapes, and a homogenous, or composed of parts that are of the same nature of the basic object or surroundings.
Rectilinear/Geometric
Objects that are rectilinear or geometric have a more sharp or pointed look to them. Truncated, tectonic, or tartan patterns are usually used in this type of design.
Both
Many structures use both organic and streamline inspirations.

Many Architecture firms pay for employees' college and education expenses.
To be an architect, you need to obtain an accredited Master's or PhD in Architecture. A Master's degree typically takes 5 1/2 to 6 years to obtain. A 5-year Bachelor's degree may be acceptable, but it is increasingly being unaccredited in many states.
