*ARC 105 Architectural Visualization has a required co-requisite: CAD114. Permission of the instructor may be obtained with prior knowledge of CADD.

**Architectural elective: Students who might not be able to secure Co-operative Work Experience at an architect's office have a choice of the following Architectural electives: CAD 116 Revit or CAD 240 Studio MAX.

Note: Certain courses can be taken only in a sequence. For example, ARC 105 will be followed by ARC 115, then ARC 201 and finally ARC 202. Some courses are offered only once a year, so students should plan carefully with their advisors' help.
