Course Numbering Information:
Courses at SLCC are identified by an alphabetic prefix (two to four letters) followed by a four-digit number. Numbers beginning with a “1” generally indicate a course designed primarily for freshmen (such as ENGL 1010); numbers beginning with a “2” generally indicate courses designed primarily for sophomores (such as MATH 2010); numbers beginning with a “0” generally indicate preparatory courses that are non-transferable (such as WRTG 0990).
ARCH 1010 - Intro. to Design Professions
Credits: 3 The study of the roles that designers play in society and what job markets are available in the areas of architecture, CAD, construction management, architectural history, landscape architecture, and interior design.
Credits: 3 Practical skills in the fundamentals of drawing and freehand sketching. Graphic media such as pencil, pen, charcoal and ink will be explored. Instruction will focus on the use of light, shadow, texture, contour and form.
Credits: 5 Residential construction techniques are analyzed from site planning to finish construction. Building codes, estimating, and specifications are discussed as they relate to methods and materials of residential construction common to Utah.
Credits: 3 Students gain the practical knowledge in the use of AutoCAD that is essential in producing architectural drawings. This course includes hands-on applications. Simple drawings will be produced.
Credits: 3 Studies include the manipulation of scanned and digital images, desktop publishing, digital presentations and web page designs. Various computer software will be used to promote the ideas and designs of architects and designers.
Credits: 3 This course will develop visual awareness and basic abstract design principles. Balance, symmetry, repetition, order variety, uniformity, proportion, motif and color will be introduced with various generic and abstract projects.
Credits: 3 Provides the foundation required for the interpretation of construction documents Including drawings and specifications. This course prepares students for CSI’s Construction Document Technician Examination.
Credits: 3 Course explores the preferred hand presentation techniques used with both two and three-dimensional drawings in the arch. design. Students will experience the jury process, peer review and learn skills needed to prepare portfolios.
Credits: 5 Basic materials and installation methods for commercial construction are studied. These include site work, concrete, masonry, curtain-walls, steel, doors, window finishes, and an overview of codes.
Credits: 3 Digital modeling is presented as an essential tool for architectural design, visualization, and presentation. Principles are stressed so that acquired skills can be used with any modeling, rendering and animation software.
Credits: 3 Basic customization of AutoCAD software will be discussed and practiced as it applies to industry. Emphasis will be placed on developing AutoCAD tools and skills that will save time and improve productivity.
