ARCH 110 COMPUTER-AIDED RESIDENTIAL DRAWING
This course introduces students to the fundamental techniques, skills, and computer usage necessary in the construction industry, including word processing, spreadsheets, and CAD, using Microsoft Word, Excel, and AutoCAD. Students develop skills through multi-week project assignments. (Fee)
(4: 2, 4) Fall
ARCH 115 FREEHAND DRAWING
Freehand Drawing first introduces strategies that refine students' ability to see and understand complex visual characteristics such as shape and form and then to record what is discerned accurately and expressively with pencil on paper. The course then introduces basic principles of design and composition in black and white and in color. Students are then encouraged to explore more personal interpretations of real and imagined objects by employing any or all of the preceding skills and strategies in a variety of sketching and design assignments. This course is also listed as ARTS 115. (A)
(3: 2, 1)
ARCH 120 ARCHITECTURAL GRAPHICS
This course introduces students to the principles of descriptive geometry as applied to architectural drawing and includes principles of orthographic, paraline, and perspective projection, as well as shade and shadow projection, with an introduction to rendering in pencil.
(2: 1, 3)
ARCH 140 ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN I
Students are challenged to explore and utilize many of the fundamental theories and principles of visual/spatial dynamics necessary to develop meaningful architectural design. Emphasis is on both the form and idea of their design solutions. Students design, construct, and graphically document three-dimensional models through a thematic series of increasingly complex exercises. (Fee)
(4: 1, 6) Fall
ARCH 201 SENIOR ARCHITECTURAL ORIENTATION
This course explores the academic and career opportunities available to students in the field of architectural technology. A review of the architectural technology profession, portfolio, résumé, and job/transfer search are covered.
Prerequisite: AECT 100
(.5: .5, 0) Fall
ARCH 220 COMMERCIAL DETAILING
This course emphasizes building-system details for commercial buildings. Several typical structural systems are explored through detailed wall section drawings, and an abbreviated set of construction drawings for a typical small commercial building is produced. All drawings are produced on CAD. (Fee)
Prerequisites: ARCH 110 and ARCH120
(4: 2, 4)
ARCH 240 ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN II
Building design projects of increasing complexity and duration are presented. Each project focuses on several specific areas of concentration, such as stairs, site, kitchen, etc., within the broader context of building design. Design conceptualization strategies, the "process" of design, and the development and resolution of specific construction details in both residential and commercial building systems are emphasized.
Prerequisites: ARCH 140, ARCH 220, and ARCH 250
(4: 1, 6) Spring
ARCH 250 3D PRESENTATION CAD
This course introduces students to three-dimensional computer modeling using Autocad, including wireframes, surfaces, and solids. Students apply "3-D" techniques to buildings and other architectural features. Photo-realistic renderings and walk-throughs are covered.
Prerequisites: ARCH 110 and ARCH 120
