Abstract: Information Technology Architecture (ITA) has been known for its importance in the alignment of the business’s needs and its technological strategies. As the companies have become more complex and the market more competitive, ITA has gained more significance and the demand for IT architects has strongly increased around the world. Nonetheless, the offer of qualified architects is not growing as fast. This is because a qualified IT architect is not easy to find as he or she has to possess many hard and soft skills. It is not a surprise then, that the time frame required for a professional to become an experienced IT architect is too long, the necessary experience is difficult to acquire and the skills are difficult to develop. This paper proposes a way to help students and professionals obtain these elements through a project based approach supported by different reality simulated enterprise cases. These cases compose what we call an IT Laboratory.
