Architectural Drafters

Architectural drafters prepare detailed drawings of architectural plans and designs for structures and buildings according to specifications from architects. They use software to transform complex plans into organized technical depictions and representations. They bring knowledge of design principles, mathematics and practical applications of technology and engineering science to projects. Architectural drafters earn an average salary of $51,960 per year.
