As the technical architect, you’ll be responsible for defining the overall structure of a program or system. You’ll act as project manager, overseeing IT assignments that are aimed at improving the business, and ensuring all parts of the project run smoothly.
To become a technical architect, you’ll often need to work your way up a career path within IT to reach the senior role.
In-depth technical knowledge isn’t a necessity as that is often required more by the people you’ll be managing. However, it’s important that you understand what technologies are out there (Java/J2EE, SQL, SAP, Oracle and C#) and what they do.
This means employers usually require a degree in a relevant subject to demonstrate you have enough technical knowledge to perform well in the role. This may be in computer sciences or computer engineering, information management systems, software development or business information systems.
Experience that is particularly favoured by employers includes systems development, analysis, programming or testing. It’s common in the industry to start work in one of these roles and progress to become a technical architect.
