Mission Statement

 To build both content knowledge and a complementary appreciation of the principles of art and design, and to cultivate an understanding of the role of the architectural professional in enhancing the civic, social, and cultural environments of individuals and communities, it is the mission of the Department of Engineering and Architectural Design to provide learning experiences that foster intellectual curiosity, stimulate critical and creative reasoning, and demonstrate the inter-relatedness of theory and history.

 Through instruction in drawing, analysis, multimedia work, and two- and three-dimensional hard and soft design, stakeholders will acquire the discrete skills and the personal confidence to create, form, manipulate, program, and construct.

 Research-based teaching strategies—blending academic and experiential opportunities—allow students to conceptualize methods of responding to the build environment to make significant and lasting contributions to a global society.
