• Architecture and Construction

    Architecture and Construction career fields include thecreative and detailed drafting of architectural designs with a focus on anenvironmentally friendly outcome. Students learn how to create architecturaldesigns using board methods prior to learning the same methods using the AutoCAD computer program. For the more active and outdoor-oriented student, theconstruction fields that include the execution of blueprints into a finishedproject or home becomes the focus. Students entering into these fields must beable to ensure well and do math functions with relative ease. Student organizations for this area include Technology Student Association (TSA) or Skills USA, which provide opportunities for leadership development andcompetitions to enhance the learning experience.

    Grade Placement .... 12
    Credits ...................... 2
    Prerequisite .............. Architecture Design II
    Location .................... Advanced Technology Complex
    Partnerships ............. Balfour Beatty Construction, VLK Architects

    What’s the problem with house designs today? Practicum students will have advanced projects that transcend a traditional classroom. Students will work on design problems modeled to meet university standards. Advanced environmental green materials and applications will be studied and applied to these designs as a continuation of 21st century technology.

  • Architectural Design II


    Grade Placement ........ 11-12
    Credits ...................... 2
    Prerequisite .............. .Architecture I and Geometry
    Location .................... Advanced Technology Complex
    Partnerships ...............Balfour Beatty Construction, VLK Architects

    Are you concerned about energy use and the environment? Architecture Design II begins to prepare the student for a career in the architectural field. The learner will use advanced AutoCAD principles to draw and design several residential structures of different historical influences. Environmental green materials and applications will be studied and applied to these designs as a continuation of 21st century technology. The student will learn safety procedures of all equipment used to build architectural models for TSA competitions.
