Our mission is to provide an opportunity for discussion and growth for young architectural professionals as they work towards licensure, along with relevant resources for continued development after registration. To foster a strong network of multi-disciplinary members and non-members and promote the value of architecture through its impact in the community.

ARE Study Group

The ARE Study Group meets at the Austin Center for Architecture in the Conference Room. The Study Group is using a Study Guide and Flashcard system, which can be purchased from www.architectexamprep.com for around $99. It is highly recommended that you buy your own study guide and print out the workbook to follow along with the class.
