Hello from Houston,
I am an undecided student that is working on completing
my basic college courses on our local community college
to later on transfering to Univ. of Houston. I have an
Associates of Applied Science degree in Drafting & Design,
and have been working in the engineering field (civil, structural)
for the last 12 yrs. Since I started my drafting profession,
I always wanted to work for an architectural firm. Destiny
lead me to work on the engineering field though. Our main clients
are mostly architectural firms, so I deal with architects on a daily basis.
After making the decision to return to school, I found out
that beginning architects make less income than I do presently.
Eventhough I have a strong will to major in Architecture, a Construction
Management degree seems to be more valuable $$wise. Could a Construction Mgmt. degree with a minor in architecture be valuable to someone that is not willing to take a paycut. Or is my past experience worth something to major in Architecture and minor in Const. Mgmt?
I still have time to explore both avenues, but this is something inevitable.

Thanks
Dago
