What does it take to become an Architect?
To become an architect, you must complete a degree program in architecture, participate in an internship and pass the Architect Registration Exam. Architects must have a strong knowledge of mathematical principles, so they can effectively plan and design buildings and other structures. Students must take several math classes in college to obtain a degree in architecture.
Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry
Algebra, geometry and trigonometry are prerequisites for taking Calculus, and Calculus is required to complete a degree program in architecture. Some students complete the algebra, geometry and trigonometry requirements in high school and can immediately start with calculus courses in college. Architecture students who didn't take courses such as Geometry and Algebra II with Trigonometry in high school must take those classes or a similar ones in college.
Students pursuing a degree in architecture must take calculus courses. At the University of Illinois and Brigham Young University, students in an architecture degree program must take both Calculus I and II. The University of Illinois allows students to take beginning or intermediate physics courses in place of Calculus II, if they choose. Calculus and physics courses help students calculate structural issues, so they can design buildings that will hold up under the weight of materials and withstand interior and exterior forces.
Probability and Statistics
Some architectural degree programs require students to take a math class in probability and statistics, which helps architects analyze data such as geological and geographical information, structural specifications and construction optimization. When an architect estimates costs for labor, materials and machinery, he often uses statistical analysis to determine the best value for the money. Some computer software and modeling programs are designed to help architects analyze statistical data quickly and effectively so they can make informed real-world decisions
