Experiential learning

Form dictates function. In this program, students earn an understanding of how physical space influences behavior and the role of architecture in culture:

  • Learning combines studio work, classroom instruction, and major construction and renovation projects, working independently and in teams.
  • Students develop skills in manual and computer-assisted design and drafting (CADD) and 3D modelling using the latest software in our state-of-the-art Design Studios.
  • During independent design projects, students determine a structure’s physical needs, and design solutions that creatively address the use of space, costs, construction methods, zoning and the environment.
  • In their last year, Technology students use 3D modelling software to design a public facility in a local community.

Outstanding faculty makes the difference

  • Learning is hands on, in brightly lit studios with dedicated teachers.
  • Professors have broad experience in architectural firms, working on everything from schools to seniors’ residences, churches and commercial renovations.
  • Learn from an accredited Architect and LEED AP, specializing in integrating sustainable techniques in architectural design.
  • A wide network of faculty contacts in the construction and design industries helps connect students with jobs.
