Architecture

Bachelors of Architecture

The Bachelor of Architecture (B-Arch) is a five-year professional degree designed to meet the National Architectural Accreditation board (NAAB) requirements. The degree features a rigorous design-oriented curriculm with a solid foundation in technology, practice-based coursework, plan and document generation, building codes, specifications, digital parametric modeling, building information modeling, architectural visualization, digital fabrication, building envelope systems, structural systems, and building sustainability.

CP in Architectural Design Technology

The Certificate of Proficiency in Architectural Design Technology applies the technical and functional elements of residential and commercial architectural design.

Program Learning Outcomes

  •  Demonstrate knowledge of architectural design, building codes, and construction methods and materials
  •  Create quality, industry level design drawings for the design discipline
  •  Use industry standard design software when producing design drawings

Surveying and Mapping

Bachelor of Science in Surveying and Mapping

Surveying and Mapping is the study of geospatial measurement and representation including such disciplines as land surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing (satellite imaging and laser scanning), geographic information systems (GIS), cartography, global positioning systems (GPS), and some parts of geography and civil engineering.
