Abstract—This paper describes the importance of new skilled architects in the discipline of Software and Enterprise Architecture. Architects are often idealized as super heroes with a lot of qualities that are very infrequent in contemporary people. The Enterprise/Software Architect role could be assumed by a group of people able to manage the qualities needed by the role. But, a group or a single person must be taught and skilled for the discipline by training them using new learning methodologies or even by traditional university classes. In order to improve the process of becoming a new architect we propose a new methodology based on synergic ontological structures and reinforcement learning that aids in the education process for new skilled architects.
