ARCHITECTURE 1 (EDGT 1090) | UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT - SEMESTER: 2 Class Periods

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • 1 Credit HS  (A88223C)
  • 2 Credits CE

An introductory architecture course focused on the art and creativity involved in architecture, as well as the science of materials and construction.  This course teaches students how to put together a set of plans in 3D software known as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) & Building Information Modeling (BIM).  This course can act as a pre-req for advanced architecture classes.


ARCHITECTURE 2 (EDGT 1020) | UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT - SEMESTER: 2 Class Periods

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • 1 Credit HS  (A82564C)
  • 3 Credits CE
  • PreReq: Architecture 1

An advanced course that continues instruction in 3D architectural design software; Computer-Aided Design (CAD) & Building Information Modeling (BIM). Students continue the design process while being taught important aspects of construction, site design & development, construction methods & codes, materials & techniques, as well as the engineering, math & science behind a structure.


ARCHITECTURE 3 | FULL YEAR

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12
  • 1 Credit HS  (A82560)
  • PreReq: Architecture 1 & 2

This course continues to explore the fundamental language of architecture. There will be an emphasis on commercial methods, materials of construction, and codes. Additionally, this class will address architectural solutions concerning building sites, programs, building types, environment, and design schemes or partis. Students will continue to develop skills in sketching, drafting, modeling, and 3D digital modeling. Additionally, students will gain a foundation in architectural theory, methodology, and communication. 


INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN (EDGT 1040) | UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -  FULL YEAR

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • 1 Credit HS  (A88180C)
  • 3 Credits CE

Students are taught the Engineering design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, and engineering standards for technical documentation. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts while finding solutions for engineering design problems.  Computer-Aided- Design (CAD) and 3D Solid Modeling software will aid students in the design process.  Projects include laser-cut designs, miniature catapults, puzzle cubes, Automoblox cars, crank toys, and 3D-printed objects.
