Courses

Introduction to the basics of construction and methods of detailing. Students learn how to create drawing types, i.e. floor plans, elevations, sections, implementing precision drawing using architectural drafting equipment and tools. Students learn the basics of AutoCAD, and Revit. Students learn accepted architectural drawing symbols, terminology, and drafting methods to produce and plot a set of construction documents.

Advanced features of the CAD /Revit software, basic functions of modeling and three-dimensional modeling programs. Using the software packages, students begin to apply their CAD knowledge to detailing, construction and modeling. The students also apply knowledge of their CAD skills in generating a set of working drawings for the studio course they are taking concurrently.

Focus on the functional and aesthetic requirements of the restaurant/food service and hospitality industry. This course presents the abstract, creative, and philosophical approach to moderate and large-scale design. Students are expected to have creative, competent design solutions while considering budgetary issues and the psychological/emotional responses of users as well as human factors of the physical space.

Application of CAD skills to actual design problems, learning to use the computer as a design tool. Advanced 2D, 3D, rendering, and animation features of various software programs will be explored.
