From sustainable houses to sophisticated office buildings and community recreation centres, you can help design and build residential, commercial and institutional spaces that will shape our communities and the way people live. Creative problem solving and real-world skills will build the buildings and cities of the future. In this program, students will learn the significance of architecture to human culture and how buildings are designed, developed and constructed. Learning combines studio work, classroom instruction and field trips to study the design and construction of major construction and renovation projects – working independently and in teams. Develop skills in manual and computer design and drafting (CADD), and then create 3D models 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, materials, codes, structure, construction methods, zoning and the environment.
