‘One of the most creative, satisfying jobs you can ever have’

Think you have what it takes to design the future? Meet Dorothy J. Gerring, associate professor of architectural technology and 31-year member of the Penn College faculty, who discusses the program and leads a virtual tour of the hands-on studio spaces on the second floor of the Carl Building Technologies Center. Outlining how the college’s two architectural degrees prepare graduates for immedite employment, Gerring says “We have a really good blend of our classes between not only some of the theoretical things – ’cause you have to be able to imagine and understand how concepts fit into things over time and across different disciplines – but also very, very solid foundational items so that, as soon as you’re graduating, you can actually walk in an office and you know what a set of working drawings are, and you can be able to be good on the job from the first day that you’re there.”
