Architecture, Associate in Applied Science

Curriculum ARC.ARC.AAS (C248A)

The goal of the Architecture curriculum is to help students develop the critical thinking, technical and visual and verbal communication skills needed to be successful in this industry. Sustainability and real world professional practices are covered throughout the curriculum, and it is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to transfer to a four-year college or university or obtain an entry-level position in architecture or a related field.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

At the successful completion of the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Architecture program, the graduate will be able to:

  • utilize state of the art equipment as it applies to design and construction;
  • develop construction documents thru AutoCAD or BIM Technology;
  • analyze various construction technologies which work together to create a building;
  • identify how global environmental issues impact the construction field;
  • create a rational design solution which incorporates programmatic, spatial, political and sustainable issues;
  • apply the history of architecture and aesthetics to design solutions; and
  • communicate design solutions clearly through verbal, 2-D and 3-D representations.
