  • Unique ProgramsArchitectural Technology, Interior Design, Landscape Design & Animation offered only at the Center for Excellence on the Meramec campusInterdisciplinary StructureAll Students take Computer Art Studio or a discipline-specific Computer Aided Design class as an entry-level course & Electronic Portfolio CoursesOther courses are shared electives among the five programs Center for Visual Technology state of the art equipment allowing courses to be offered that cannot be duplicated on other campusesGovernance StructureOverview Task ForceSubcommittees (Curriculum Development, Marketing, Professional Organization & Community Liaison, Workplace Learning, Travel, Training and Released Time)
  • The Architectural Technology program at STLCC-Meramec offers courses from hand drafting to the latest computer software drafting and 3-D modeling programs. Students receive a solid base in many areas of the architectural profession, with classes ranging from architectural history to mechanical and electrical systems.Our facilities include traditional drafting studios as well as state-of-the-art computer-aided drafting and imaging labs, giving students access to the latest industry software and hardware. All studio drafting tables have a computer workstation with internet access.
  • The class was ARC 124 – Introduction to Building Information Modeling (BIM), and the software was REVIT by AutoDesk.    The entire construction industry is switching over to BIM as this software acts as a database storing much more information about a building than typical computer aided drafting.   With BIM, you create a building three dimensionally, and the program interprets plans, elevations, etc.   By creating a building 3-D on the screen, students get a much better and more thorough understanding of how a project comes together.   This program also has use long after the construction process is over.  Facilities managers will keep these files, because it will store info about quantity of carpet or size of windows that they may need for future maintenance and replacement.  A lot of government entities are now requiring the use of BIM on their projects for this reason.  The program also allows you to create 3-d rendering and animation sequences (as shown in the movie) that allow designers to better ‘sell’ a project, and clients and owners to have a better understanding of their project.  Less surprises happen this way, and clients are more stisfied.   Through our subscription package with AutoDESK – we always have the most current version – and we are running REVIT which is the industry standard.
  • Instructors are practicing professionals who keep abreast of the most current technological advances in the industry. An advisory committee of area architects works with the faculty to ensure that the program prepares students with relevant, marketable skills in architecture and architecture-related businesses.Students have the opportunity to join the Meramec Architectural Society (MAS) and the Student Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIAS). Various networking events and building demonstrations (routs) are scheduled throughout the year.
  • Local architect in Meramec’s service area.
  • Transfer OpportunitiesMany graduates transfer to four and five-year professional programs in order to continue their educational experience in architecture or a related field. Transfer requirements vary; therefore, students are encouraged to work with an academic advisor to ensure credit transferability.Employment OpportunitiesStudents are qualified for entry-level employment in the many architectural, design and construction industries. They may become drafting technicians and assistants to architects, interior designers, landscape designers etc. They may also work for professional rendering and computer imaging companies, architectural product sales and support
  • The Critical Difference-What makes this program unique? - Meramec is the only campus with the Interior Design Program.The Interior Design program emphasizes a strong foundation in visual art skills, architecture and space-planning. Utilizing these foundations, students develop creative projects using a systemic approach to the design process. Coursework includes solving interior design related problems by developing free-hand and drafting skills, computer skills and oral presentations skills. Issues in sustainable design are also explored within the studio environment.Students develop their skills in state-of-the-art facilities, using the latest industry software programs:AutoCAD 2009 (soon to be 2010)REVIT (building information modeling software)20/20 (3-D software used in the Kitchen and Bath Industry)
  • FacultyStudents learn from instructors who are also Professional Interior Designers in the field.StudentsStudents are directly involved with Professional Organizations through our 3 student chapters.ASID: American Society of Interior DesignersIIDA: International Interior Design AssociationNKBA: National Kitchen and Bath AssociationParticipate in community service projects that not only benefit the community, but also give students real world experience in the field of Interior Design.
