About Course

To pursue a career in architecture in the USA and Canada, you’ll generally need the following qualifications and requirements:


A bachelor’s degree in architecture is typically required, followed by a master’s degree in some cases.


Architects must be licensed to practice in both the USA and Canada. This involves completing the Internship in Architecture Program (IDP) and passing the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) in the USA or the Examination for Architects in Canada (ExAC).

Professional Associations:

Consider joining professional associations such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in the USA or the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) in Canada.

Software Skills:

Proficiency in architectural design software like AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, and 3D modeling tools is essential.

Building Codes:

Familiarity with local building codes and regulations is crucial for architectural design and planning.


Architects need strong creative and design skills to develop innovative and functional building designs.

Communication Skills:

Effective communication is important for collaborating with clients, engineers, and construction teams.

Expected Salary in the USA and Canada:

Salaries for architects in the USA and Canada vary based on experience, location, specialization, and the specific employer. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, here’s a rough estimate of salary ranges for architects in both countries:

  • Entry-Level Architect: $50,000 – $70,000 per year
  • Intermediate Architect: $70,000 – $90,000 per year
  • Senior Architect: $90,000 – $120,000+ per year

Please note that these figures are approximate and can vary significantly based on factors such as location (urban vs. rural), firm size, and project scope.
