full-time faculty and a growing number of adjunct faculty from
industry who teach courses in drafting, surveying, mapping, and
engineering design. Following the associate degree, students

architecture to conceive of comprehensive architectural design that
meets contemporary needs. The program promotes a built environment
that bolsters genuine communities through architecture that is
durable, useful, beautiful, and human scaled. The holistic
