What can I do with...

...an architecture degree?

Befuddled by your career options? This clever little tool helps you find out what you can do with your architecture degree.

Sectors

 

Having chosen to do architecture, you might believe that you’re destined to spend your professional life in a black polo neck, sporting “minimalist” glasses and waxing lyrical about light and space. Actually that doesn’t sound too bad, but you might want to explore the various sectors you could enter with an architecture degree:

Skills

 

As well as some excellent technical and practical skills, your architecture degree will help you to develop a wealth of useful transferable skills…

Advanced I.T. Skills

Microsoft office? Child’s play! You’ve got highly developed I.T. skills that’d run rings around the average schmuck.

Attention to Detail

You can spot a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can even spot a specific needle in a massive stack of needles. You’re just that sharp.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Computer-Aided Design

Forget pen and paper, you’ve got highly desirable computer-aided design skills.

Creativity

You have the ability to come up with creative and innovative ideas. You’re so far outside the box you can’t even see the box. The box is merely a dot on the horizon.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Leadership

You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Negotiation

Articulate, methodical and composed, your negotiation skills are top-notch. You could even give Barry Obama a run for his money.

Numeracy

Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.
