204 Commercial Design (1-8-4). A continuation of ARET 102. Course work will expose the student to design elements of various types of commercial structures. Coursework will include problems dealing with specific criteria in the design of commercial type structures. PR: ARET 102.
205 History of Architecture (3-0-3). Through lectures, photo slides, and video presentations, the student is introduced to architectural styles, philosophies, and construction systems that have developed over the ages. Influences such as social, political, religious, economic, and technological advances are traced from ancient times through our present day. Emphasis is placed on the relevance of this history upon today’s society and architectural styles. Class discussions provide an opportunity for dialogue on relevant historic topics and lecture content.
216 Building Control Systems (3-0-3). The course will survey the configuration of systems and basic principles of design of mechanical equipment used in buildings. Course work will include survey heating, ventilating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical systems, and principles of energy conservation. PR: GNET 102.
