Architectural Design Minor


The minor in Architectural Design provides students with an understanding of the underlying principles of architectural design. It serves students in all majors. It is especially useful for students interested in pursuing careers in the development, finance, construction and/or promotion of building related activities. It is also important for other students with social, cultural, and art backgrounds, who are interested in the respective aspects of the built environment. Construction engineering students will also benefit from the minor by becoming better qualified in the challenging activities of the construction industry.
