Careers in Related Professions

Individuals who are less interested in the architecture of buildings than in planning or designing the contexts, built and natural, within which buildings exist might explore some of the other environmental design professions. Chief among these would be Landscape Architecture and City and Regional Planning.

Those who are more interested in the technical than the artistic aspects of building design may gravitate toward Architectural Engineering, which includes the design of structural and mechanical systems that are essential parts of any building or other construction project. Engineers are licensed professionals who are indispensible members of the design team on all but the smallest projects.

Still others prefer to focus exclusively on the design of interior spaces and leave the artistic and technical aspects of building design to others. For them, Interior Design might be an attractive option.

Finally, there are those who are not interested in design at all, but in orchestrating the construction process. They may wish to pursue careers in Construction Management.
