Description:

Becoming an Architect is a highly visual career guide for those who are considering, or embarking upon, a career in architecture. Using the three Es of becoming an architect -- a) Education, b) Experience, and c) Exam, this book provides readers with a detailed outline of graduating with an accredited professional degree in architecture, the "experience" or internship component, and the exam, the Architect Registration Examination (A.R.E.). Becoming an Architect orients readers to an architect's duties and tasks, as well as providing an overview of design specialities, the job search, registration requirements, and the many directions in which a career in architecture can go. In addition, career profiles of those within the profession are scattered throughout the text, highlighting the many career paths within the field of architecture - both traditional and nontraditional. This is the essential guide for anyone entering or considering the architecture profession.
