The Camino College’s Architecture Program prepares students for either transfer to a university or to enter the workforce upon the degree or certificate completion. By earning the degree or certificate, the student has demonstrated various proficiencies including hand-drawn and Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD), design application, sustainable practices, construction methods, three-dimensional drawing, and model-making. Students have the option of pursuing one of three paths that can result in an Associate in Science Degree(two options) or a Certificate of Achievement. Students earning either a degree or a certificate may expect to enter the industry as an entry-level draftsperson in the architecture (or related) field or transfer to an accredited university architecture program.

The primary emphasis of the Associate in Science Degree in Architecture – University Track is on the courses that focus on the design application, process, and theory as it relates to the built environment. This concentration is delivered via a design studio sequence and is the foundation of any university architecture program. This better prepares students for transfer to a 4- or 5-year university/college architecture program. Students completing this degree will be qualified for university/ application and architecture school placement.
The objectives for the Associate in Science degree in Architecture – University Track:
· provides a clear path to complete the degree and transition to a university program.
· supports a more focused curriculum that better prepares students for upper division design courses.
· offers more relevant portfolio content to demonstrate for university program admission review.
· improves curriculum alignment with university architecture programs.
After earning an Associate in Science Degree in Architecture (University Track), students will achieve a more defined design fluency that makes transferring to a university or college program easier and program placement more effective. Such an educational endeavor however does not preclude the pursuit of workforce placement since the required courses remain relevant to employment within an architectural practice.
Upon successful completion of the Associate in Science Degree in Architecture – University Track Program, students will be able to:
1. Apply creative problem-solving skills to address a project’s constraints and achieve architecturally competent solutions.
2. Employ design thinking skills through abstraction and analysis while interpreting the built environment from both the perspective of an artistic expression and a technical solution.
3. Demonstrate the iterative process to develop abstract ideas into a set of drawings that effectively conveys the design strategy.
4. Communicatean architectural solution utilizing drawing conventions and visual vocabulary emphasizing the design proposal’s meaning and performative framework.
Assimilate more easily into the design studio culture that defines much of a university-level architectural learning environment.
