Course Description:
 This is a specialization course in the Project Lead the Way engineering program and is designed to prepare students for careers in architecture. The course provides an overview of the fields of civil engineering and architecture and emphasizes the interrelationship of the two. A major focus of the course is a long-term project involving the development of a local property. As students learn various aspects of civil engineering and architecture, they use the knowledge to design and develop the property via computer simulation and hands-on activities.

This course is offered in single-period and double- period formats. Paid and unpaid internships are part of the course curriculum.
