I'm looking for advice here from anyone who's done this or even thought about it. It may be mad, but I'll never know unless I try it. I'm 43 years old, and after ten years of designing/re-designing residential recording studios and plain old houses in various countries, I've decided to get a professional Architectural qualification that's good worldwide. I've already got a BSc from a London (UK) University in Banking and International Finance, and I'm living in Florida, USA working for a subsidiary of a UK company in the pro-audio business. Oh yes, and I'm not in a hurry. Anyway, I figure it's better to do the drafting work myself in future, if possible, rather than continuing to....er.....poke architects on the projects I'm involved in with a pointed stick. So: this involves at the very least getting through both BSc and MSc in Architecture (with a side helping of Acoustics/ Acoustical Engineering ), which could take 6-7 years. So far, Texas A&M looks like a possible. They seem, uniquely for a highly-rated University, to give the maximum credit/exemptions for an underlying non-Arch. degree, cutting the BSc down to an acceptable minimum.........unless I've misunderstood them, which of course is quite possible. Is this advisable/improbable/laughable? Anyone got a clue? Any Architects out there? Any advice appreciated.
