    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great start to getting to know the architectural realm. You begin to learn who you are as a designer and what you can do in the future to keep improving the motor and mental skills to be the best architect you can be.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was definitely the multiple design processes that we as students had to go through, being it was our first semester as an undergraduate architecture major. I learned basic drafting and design skills.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Use your time very wisely. You can always be working on something for this class to develop a design to the best of your ability.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Excellent learning environment. Very hands-on (and finger tips off) and creative. Shruti is extremely available to her students. Model making is a great way to get inside your designs and see them from a different view point. Designing monuments was an aspect of Architecture I had never even considered, yet the first semester of Architecture School at AAU, we did just that!

    Course highlights:

    Model making was the biggest learning experience of Studio I, and it will be used every semester in every Studio course. I learned that Maylines' are the best parallel straight edges for a very good reason and Tigersupplies.com has the best price. I learned that it is sometimes okay to make additions to assignments when they seem to be missing things (like doors), but it is always okay to ask questions (even when you think you ask too many). I learned not to cut chipboard sideways and without a flat edge.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking this program online - buy a few different thicknesses and sizes of chipboard, instead of 20 pieces of one thickness and size. I recommend 5 pieces of (roughly) 30" x 40" @ .10" thickness, 10 pieces of (roughly) 15" x 20" @ .10" thickness, and 10 pieces of (roughly) 15" x 20" .080 chipboard. The .10 is more difficult to cut by hand (I use a Dremel Saw Max for cutting down the large pieces and a Dremel Moto Saw for precision straight cuts on the smaller pieces, as well as shapes. I also use my Dremel Rotary tool with right angle head and mini-saw attachment at times.), but the pieces are easier to glue together. Unlike the .080, it's not necessary to hold the .10 pieces together or brace them with anything during the initial glue application phase. It makes for much quicker work. If you are willing to invest in the saws, don't worry about the different sizes and thickness.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very informative. The pace is consistent, the material is engaging, and the instructor was very attentive providing constructive critiques often. This allowed me to become comfortable with the material and what was expected from us. I felt that anything I felt uncomfortable with was addressed quickly and constructively, bettering me as a student and as an Architecture major.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights in my opinion were the studio projects. They allow creative freedom for students that are interested in the field of Architecture. Allowing art students the chance to create something truly unique to their style can create more interest and participation in a course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is rather demanding. Projects often build off of the previous weeks work so staying on top of work and meeting deadlines is crucial. Staying engaged isn't a hard task, but it is a very necessary one. There isn't much time throughout the week to not be motivated.
