Architecture

The Blinn College District Architecture Program focuses on design as the fundamental element of the architectural discipline and teaches solid fundamentals through design, drawing, history and related courses.

Designed to give students a foundation in architecture and design, the program includes rigorous introductory courses in AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Adobe Photoshop, hand drafting, and perspective drawing. With small class sizes, students receive personalized instruction from program faculty and are challenged with projects and presentations compatible with curricula at four-year institutions.

Students learn to blend creativity and practicality for increased proficiency in design, engineering, and project management. Courses are designed for a two-year Associate of Arts in architecture that allows students to enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year university to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Bachelor of Arts History, or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
