Texas Tech University

Architecture, Construction and Design

The margins of your notebooks are filled with sketches and drawings. Or maybe you use computer software to design things. You're already planning the furnishings and colors that will make your dorm room the perfect space.

If you're the creative type who enjoys design, choose a major in architecture, construction, or design. Use the most modern technological tools to build a portfolio, then test the knowledge you gain in the classroom while building a community center in Mexico or assisting a designer in Los Angeles. Your professors will teach you in and out of the classroom, with field experiences and study abroad opportunities specific to your major.

 "Dream big—we'll help you go wherever your creative mind takes you."

Why Texas Tech?

You'll know where you're going in life and have the skills to get there, like Chris Davison a senior Interior Design/Architecture major who completed a summer internship with a designer in Dallas. Chris did CAD drawings, called on fabric estimates and organized the materials library. "It was very much a hands-on experience," said Chris. And he was prepared.

"The placement rate of Architecture graduates is near 100% every year."
