Architecture and engineering firms throughout the region have come to depend on the talented and knowledgeable students who graduate from New River Community College’s architecture program. Though most specializations offer up to 15 credit hours, architecture students have an additional 12 hours of architectural training due to the unique structure and specialized offerings within the CAD program.
They graduate with training and knowledge packed into four semesters of intense training.
