INDS 101 - Interior design 1
This first course is an introduction to the process of visual communication for interior designers. The first semester begins with a review of the proper use of drafting equipment, through the development of two-dimensional drawings such as floor plans, sections and elevations. The course then focuses on three-dimensional drawings: axonometric and isometric praline projection with limited perspective techniques.
INDS 102 - Interior Design 2
Prerequisite: INDS 101a minimum B or approval of instructor
This is a comprehensive course that explores the design development phase of the design process. It also encompasses the interrelationship of the elements of the three-dimensional aspects of space, such as scale and proportion, as well as detailing materials, finishes, furnishings, and their application in the residential environment.
ARCH 101 - AutoCAD & Sketch up
This first course in Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CAD&SKETH UP) covers the basic concepts and techniques encountered in today’s microcomputer-based CAD systems. Major commands, defining a drawing and editing techniques are mastered. Basic prototype drawings are created and recorded on hard copy.
ARCH 102 - 3D design
Prerequisite: ARCH 101a minimum B or approval of instructor
This course introduces the use of hand tools and workshop equipment to develop rapid study models and mid-fidelity prototypes related to industrial design. Students build study models of products to professional standards of accuracy and finish, with an emphasis on rapid development.
This is an introduction to the concepts, functions, materials and construction techniques of furniture design. It also is a review of design theory development in two- and three-dimensional forms of a basic furniture concept or design. Lectures and field trips prepare students to solve furniture design problems in drawing and model techniques.
ARCH 103 - Architecture Design
Prerequisite: ARCH 101, ARCH 102a minimum B or approval of instructor
This studio course concentrates on the ways in which a building’s site and environmental context influence architectural design. Students conduct simple site analyses and make design decisions on that basis. The ability to create meaningful design solutions and fulfill simple programmatic requirements is also emphasized.
