Throughout the third year students develop the ability to design environmental control and integrated building construction systems as well as the ability to utilize advanced graphic communication strategies. A professional practice course provides students with an understanding of the architect’s responsibilities to the health, safety and welfare of both individuals and communities. The design studios are intended to develop the student’s understanding of ways to integrate environmental control systems and building construction systems.
