Morrisville provided me with a sound foundation necessary to become the young professional I am today.  Specifically, the technical skill set I learned through the dedicated faculty placed me in advanced courses upon graduation, positioning me further ahead of my peers.  Not only was I thoroughly introduced to the importance of design within the profession of architecture and its allied fields, but Morrisville also provided me a platform to excel within the public service and leadership sector of the profession.  I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend, embrace, and excel as a Mustang during my tenure at MSC.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Translate abstract ideas to interpret information, consider diverse points of view, reach well-reasoned conclusions, and test alternative outcomes against relevant criteria and standards.
  • Employ at a theoretical level, elements, forms, spatial relationships, examples, organization, circulation, sequence, proportion, scale and ordering principles to make clear three dimensional architectural ideas and concepts.
  • Apply an architectural design logic that accounts for composition, order, analysis, precedent, experimentation, presentation, competition, independence and teamwork.
  • Generate an analytical approach to the design process, and concept development, while considering implications for possible responses, problems and architectural outcomes.
  • Employ the basic principles utilized in architecture, construction and building technologies, in the use of construction material products, components, and assemblies, based on their traditional and innovative characteristics and performance, including their environmental impact and reuse.
  • Synthesize the principles of conceptualization, process, history, exploration, analysis, precedence, place, integration, sustainability, materials, construction compliance, creativity and imagination in response to architecture and architectural design in the natural and built environments.
  • Use appropriate representational media such as traditional architectural graphic, modeling and digital technology skills and techniques to delineate, express and convey architectural ideas and concepts.
  • Create technically clear architectural drawings and renderings that demonstrate knowledge of the conventional principles of architectural drafting and drawing to illustrate and identify the assembly of materials, systems and components.
