CAPS Architecture and Engineering - Bormann

In Foundations of Multi-disciplinary Design, students will become part of cross discipline teams within a growing architecture and engineering design firm and will work alongside professionals on projects for healthcare, industry, education, government and commercial clients. Students will be exposed to multiple design professions including architecture, interior design, structural and mechanical engineering, electrical and civil engineering, landscape architecture and surveying. They will gain experience with design processes and begin to develop an understanding of construction technologies and technical aspects of the built environment.

In addition, they will gain exposure to specific technical skills and have opportunities to learn associated software such as AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Photoshop, Illustrator and ArcGIS. Students will also have the opportunity to develop portfolio materials suitable for use in applying to professional and technical degree programs. Students will be encouraged to experience one or more of these professions in more depth as they work on real world design projects that shape the environment for future generations.
