Architects are responsible for creating and designing the structures we use every day, from the smallest of homes to the tallest of skyscrapers. Industrial designers shape our world, from games and electronic devices, to bicycles, boats, planes, and cars. Both disciplines require a unique blend of artistic, mathematic, and personal skills. They are interested in the human interface, and seek a design harmony between physical, emotional, psychological, safety, and environmental concerns.
Students in this Pathway are drawn to math and science while also engaging in artistic pursuits. These students like to create visual art. They also like technology. Perhaps they enjoyed designing things with Legos, cardboard boxes, or other media as a young child. In addition to the normal suite of courses, students in this Pathway will develop a design portfolio and will gain a higher level of proficiency in Computer Aided Design tools.
