Architectural - ARCH.COC

The Architectural Certificate of Completion is a one year program of studies that is designed to prepare students for entry level positions in the field of architectural design and drafting. Upon successful completion of the requirements of the program, a Certificate of Completion (ARCH.COC) from STCC will be awarded.

In the Certificate Program students develop basic graphic skills using free-hand drawing, technical drawing and computer aided design. Students become familiar with orthographic projection as well as three dimensional drawings and model building. Students develop architectural design skills by designing their own residential projects, demonstrating an understanding of building forms, passive solar energy and environmental concerns as well as estimating the cost of construction.

Students who complete the required program of study are prepared for entry level employment as an architectural draftsperson, computer-aided draftsperson/designer, and construction estimator. Students who are interested in continuing their studies in Architecture may use this program of studies as the first year of our Architectural Transfer Option.

 

Upon successful completion of the requirements of the program, a Certificate of Completion in Architectural from STCC will be awarded.
