Architecture is a multi-disciplinary profession that blends science and engineering with art and creative thinking. In the Architecture courses offered at TECC-E, students will have the opportunity to solve design problems by creating drawings, sketches, renderings, illustrations, and models using digital and traditional tools. Students will learn a variety of architectural software as well as traditional drafting and drawing techniques.
For students who are interested in continuing their career in Architecture, Architectural Design I and II, Practicum in Architectural Design, and Career Preparation I and II are also available. Students will work in both 2D space and 3D space, so an understanding of geometry and other basic math skills is useful. Coursework within the Architecture classes will make connections back to other subjects of study within school including literature, science, history, and other topics that relate to class projects.
