ARCH 3304 - Construction Technology II

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

CIAT 1023 with "D" or better or ARCH 1023 with "D" or better

Description: 

This course is a study of methods, systems, and materials used in the design and construction of commercial buildings. An emphasis is placed on the integration of materials and systems used for foundations, envelope construction, and roof systems. A general study of the International Building Code is included with respect to public commercial structures. Various two-dimensional and three-dimensional computer applications are used throughout the course.

ARCH 3104 - Design Studio I

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

ARCH 2394 with "C" or better or CIAT 2394 with "C" or better

Description: 

This is a course that presents students with a systematic approach to architectural design methods. Methods of graphic thinking are introduced as a means of exploring and evaluating issues related to the design process. Architectural form and style are investigated relative to human factors and environmental context. Verbal and graphic communication skills are also refined in the development of student design presentations.

Architecture Fee - $106

ARCH 2394 - Design Fundamentals II

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

ARCH 1184 with C or better or CIAT 1184 with C or better

Description: 

Introductory course designed to expose students to fundamental design skills, 3D problems solving, color theory, perspective drawing and rendering.  The course examines specific issues such as format, figure/ground, rhythm, contrast, datum, value, space definition, color theory/rendering, one and two point perspective methods and basic model building.

ARCH 2201 - Architectural Computer Graphic Applications

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
1
Description: 

This course is designed to introduce students to two-dimensional and three-dimensional programs used in the architectural and interior design industries today. It intends to walk students through the basics of Revit and establish a foundation for the future learning of computer applied design. Once a basic understanding of the software environment is established, students will produce a series of architectural documents. These drawings will incorporate Revit as a design, drafting and analytical tool.

ARCH 2123 - Environmental Controls I

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

MATH 1033 with C or better or MATH 1034 with C or better or MATH 1054 with D or better or MATH 1063 with D or better 

Description: 

This course introduces the student to the fundamental principles of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems for residential and commercial buildings. MEP system components, their integration into the building, and energy conservation are discussed and illustrated. Students will design various residential systems and will solve problems related to heat loss, fuel usage, fixture quantity, and supply and drain, waste, and vent piping.

ARCH 1184 - Design Fundamentals I

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

COMP 1503 with D or better and (MATH 1033 with D or better or MATH 1034 with D or better or MATH 1054 with D or better or MATH 1063 with D or better)

Description: 

An introduction to fundamental design, architectural design drawing and applied drawing techniques. Students are introduced in lecture to design and drawing principles, techniques and conventions used to develop and communicate architectural ideas. Lab assignments emphasize the relationship between drawing and three-dimensional form and space, and include exercises in basic design and model-making.

ARCH 1023 - Construction Technology I

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

COMP 1503 with D or better and (MATH 1033 with D or better or MATH 1034 with D or better or MATH 1054 with D or better or MATH 1063 with D or better)

Description: 

This course introduces students to the materials, methods and systems commonly used in residential construction. Students will study the inherent qualities of materials and develop an understanding of their use and integration within a residential structure. Students will study the physical properties of the materials as well as how the materials are manufactured to produce a satisfactory product for the construction process.
