The Architecture program focuses not on design theory but, rather, on the job skills necessary to piece together a building
project and to develop the analytical and descriptive drawings necessary for the project
to be constructed. The program covers manual and CAD drafting, Building Information
Modeling (BIM), detailing, product selection and specification, design, the study
of architectural history, code evaluation and other skills used daily in the occupation.
Students who graduate from our Architecture program obtain employment (often well before graduation) in a variety of environs. Most find jobs in architectural and engineering firms who rely heavily upon them for their computer aided design (CAD) training and skills. Others are hired by builders, developers, product manufacturers, retailers, and other industry related businesses.
Here's a sample of what you'll learn.
ATTENTION: The majority of architectural software used across the industry does not run on a Macintosh® operating system. Please keep this in mind if you are planning to purchase a new computer for completing coursework in these classes.
