Architectural Technology Fall 2014 Student SLO Report
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I liked the overall structure of the program.
I liked the material that we covered in the CAD classes specifically. Learning REVIT will help
me in the workplace for years to come.
This program taught me real life situations and gave me the experience I need to start out in this
field
I really enjoyed this program, mostly learning all the new programs.
I liked the trips and "hands-on" activities we did as a class.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
add more drafting courses
This is not specifically a program change, but having computers available in all classrooms is
critical. We had a structural analysis class with no computers. It would have made the class
much more useful had computers been in there.
Maybe when each class is taught.
One thing I would change would be Tech math.
Nothing
Add CAD back into the program

concepts you learned.
Text Response
Not because of the math I learned at Western though. Much of the math taught here is not
useful in our program at all. Geometry and Trigonometry and how they apply to Architecture
should be the focus. An Architectural Math class should be offered with an emphasis on
structure and design concepts. Call the class Applied Architectural Math.
