Student Resources

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
  • Laser cutter & engraver


The architecture department has partnered with two local firms:

  • David Goldstein Architect, Inc.
  • Vivek Harris Architect, Inc. 

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


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.


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.

"You get to work on the different situations of a company: how to manage the balance sheet, the income statements, stockholders equity. I want to get to a place where I would improve myself in a better life and not just apply at any job. By taking this class it will help me to understand a foundation to the job that I will be working in. It's really fun."
