AREN 4317 - Architectural Engineering Design
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
Provides a capstone experience to AREN students. Students design a modest commercial building and complete an integrated engineering design of the building systems executed for the conceptual, schematic, and design development phases. Students' teams work on structural, mechanical, electrical/lighting, and construction engineering management design. Each stage produce a professional-quality design document. Faculty and industry mentors participate in the teaching and evaluation of designs.
AREN 4530 - Advanced Lighting Design
Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
Intended to help students understand light as a medium in design, begin the formulation of a philosophical perspective for its application, and continue to develop the skills required to design and implement lighting systems. Knowledge from previous lighting classes (Illumination I and Illumination II) is essential to this course.
AREN 4550 - Illumination 2
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020
Applies the principles studied in Illumination 1. Provides further study in architectural lighting design methods. Uses lighting studio work to develop a broad knowledge of lighting equipment, design methods, and their application in a series of practical design problems in modern buildings.
AREN 4830 - Special Topics for Seniors/Grads
Fall 2019 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
Supervised study of special topics of interest to students under instructor guidance. May be repeated up to 12 total credit hours.
