Architectural Drafting

Equipment and Facilities:

Our facilities include a fully equipped Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) lab with:

  • Up-to-date hardware and software
  • State-of-the-art 3D printer
  • 42" wide plotter for larger CAD prints and colored images
  • Laser printers and copiers

Partnerships:

The architecture department has partnered with two local firms:

The firms provide office tours, take part in studio reviews, and mentor architecture students.

PROJECT BASED LEARNING:

Architecture students work with real-life projects such as a recent redesign of the Good Samaritan Shelter in Santa Maria, CA.  This project included model building, blueprint and design details, artist renderings and oral presentations to faculty and community members on each individual student project.  Each semester, a different project is selected for the class to work with.

STUDENT CLUBS:

The American Institute of Architectural Students (AIAS) is active on campus and every year, a group of students participate in the Cal Poly State University Open House Design Competition in San Luis Obispo, California.

SPOTLIGHT

Ivan Lucatero

Ivan Lucatero
Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering

I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
