Architecture, Design, and Construction...Oh, My

You may think you know what the folks in CADC are doing, but you have no idea! As a student in the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction you can major in:
  • Architecture
  • Interior Architecture
  • Building Science
  • Industrial Design
  • Graphic Design
  • Landscape Architecture (graduate program only)
  • and Community Planning (graduate program only)
But you know that. But did you know...

...that Architecture students have three opportunities to practice and learn away from campus? International Studies opportunities take students to places like Rome, Italy (see picture to the left). The Auburn Center for Architecture and Urban Studies in downtown Birmingham, AL, and Rural Studio, based in rural west Alabama, allow students to engage in local communities via hands-on service-learning projects.

...our Interior Architecture students can pursue professional licensure, while enrolled, the only program like it in the US? Students not only study design history and standards but also have the chance to learn about cutting-edge movements such as green (environmentally conscious) design. So see, Al Gore isn't the only one working to help the environment!

...that Building Science students occupy positions in all areas of the construction industry? In addition to their professional pursuits, AU students participate in some awesome community projects such as pouring basketball courts for area elementary schools and a driveway for a local Habitat for Humanity house.

...that AU Industrial Design majors work with the likes of 3M, the Emerson Tool Company, and NASA while you are a student?

...that you can work in the advertising industry on the design side by pursuing a Graphic Design major? This program, allied with the department of art, gives you plenty of chances to stretch your creativity into all sorts of areas.

...that you can complete a graduate program as well? CADC offers two great programs in Landscape Architecture and Community Planning.

So, if you are looking for a unique way to apply your analytical and creative skills in a competitive, yet exciting environment, then the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction may be for you!
