ARCH X 466EDesign Communication II

What students are saying:

In regards to Design Communication II:

“I feel that this was a great extension of DC I in the fact that it built upon the drafting skills, and construction document foundation established in DC I. The class moves at an appropriate pace, and ensures a cohesive portfolio at the end of the quarter.”

“[Design Communication II] was a very structured and demanding course, which I appreciated. I feel as though I refined many of my DC I drafting skills as well as learned new information to make my drawings more professional.”
