Know what the Great Pyramid, Eiffel Tower, and an In-N-Out Burger have in common? They were all designed and built by architects.

Architecture is the art and science of designing and building structures and the impact it has on society cannot be overestimated. Architecture determines the very way we experience and move through life. As Winston Churchill said, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”

In the Architecture program at MCC, you’ll learn what you need to begin a career as a technician in architectural design, drafting, or urban development. You can also use your degree and certificate to continue studying architecture at a four-year university.

The Architecture program has three tracks:

  • Architecture Design
    • Architecture Design students are able to learn the building design process and procedures for all types of architectural design on board and computer. We are working to create greater transfer opportunities to ASU Main, Cal Poly and other universities.
  • Architectural Drafting
    • Architecture Drafting students are able to learn the drafting and documentation process for all types of architectural drawing on board and computer. This will give the students the opportunity to transfer to a four year university such as ASU East. We are working to create greater transfer opportunities to other universities.
  • Urban Development
    • Urban Development students are able to learn the land development process, as well as appropriate land use and procedures applied to residential, commercial, recreational and industrial areas. This will give the students the opportunity to transfer to a four year university such as ASU East. We are working to create greater transfer opportunities to ASU Main and other universities.
