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

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.
