Planning & Design

Planning applies established procedures to solve a largely understood problem within an accepted framework. Design inquires into the nature of a problem to conceive a framework for solving that problem. In general, planning is problem solving, while design is problem setting.

Project Planning & Design focuses on the schematic design phase of a project. In this experience area, you'll learn to lay out building designs, review building codes and regulations, coordinate schematics with consultants, and communicate design concepts with your client.
