CADE 102 Architecture and Engineering Introduction to Design Theory

5 credits
This course is an overview of theoretical practices associated with design from an architectural, mechanical, and civil engineering related perspective. Understanding the design process is the primary focus of this course. The discovery process of how to take a design from a problem/need to a design solution will be explored. Students are introduced to basic design principles that determine the form and function of designs. Assignments and exercises will incorporate sustainable practices, and student projects will employ management strategies.

Prerequisites: ABED 040  (or placement in MATH 087  or higher) and ABED 046  (or placement in ENGL 093  or higher)

Corequisites: CADE 101 , CADE 103 , and CADE 104  

Quarters Offered: Fall, Spring

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Develop a personal design process for addressing design problems
  • Incorporate and identify 2D and 3D design principles (hierarchy, proportion, implied space, etc.) and examine how they are used in various design solutions
  • Critique the effectiveness of a design based on its form and function
  • Communicate design solutions through the use of sketching and modeling
  • Manage personal and team projects
