Three Loyalist College Architectural Technology Students Present Top Final Projects, April 16th

April 15, 2014

Three students from the third-year Architectural Technology program at Loyalist College have been selected to present their final architectural projects on Wednesday, April 16th. The presentations encompass students’ design processes, used throughout the past two semesters, ranging from initial concepts and design development to comprehensive contract documentation.

In attendance will be members of the Architectural Technician/Technology program advisory committee, and members of the design community, including special guests David Miller, an Architect from Oshawa, and Interior Designer Andrea Osborne from Prince Edward County.

“We are always very proud of our students’ accomplishments,” said Coordinator and Professor Chuck Barsony. “A number of our third-year students have already been hired in their fields. The best part of my job is receiving that phone call a month or year after they graduate and hearing how well they are doing as professionals working as architectural technologists, chief building officials, building development consultants and AutoCAD technicians.”

About the three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma Architectural Technology program: Through independent design projects, students determine a structure’s physical needs and design solutions to creatively address use of space, costs, construction methods, zoning and the environment. They then bring their concepts to life, creating a 3D scale model of their design.

In their graduating year, third-year students use 3D modeling software to design a public facility in a local community. They consider everything from schematics, landscaping, interior design, cost estimates, written specifications, and construction detailing. They produce and present a technical report to an advisory committee of faculty and industry leaders.

Loyalist College prepares students for a rewarding career by combining rigorous academic standards with hands-on training from industry experts. Programs range from apprenticeships and certificates to diplomas and post-graduate studies. Loyalist offers 65 full-time programs and 77 university transfer agreements around the world. Loyalist is committed to helping students find great jobs, as well as supporting and enhancing the economic and social development of all individuals in its communities.
