Students work side-by-side with professionals from the architectural and engineering community, gaining valuable on-the-job experience. In the classroom, students develop skills in mathematics, drawing and lettering, architectural concepts and design and construction techniques, utilizing both conventional drawing techniques and computer aided drafting.
