Architecture/Urban Planning programs focus on the foundations of building design, both for residential and commercial purposes. As such, you will be studying about the basic codes and standards, as well as the latest technologies in building design. You will also have lessons in drawing, as well as in using various software in order to digitally present your designs to clients in an engaging manner, which you will be practicing in class. You will have projects on various themes, as well. In fact, many universities have design studios where you can apply the skills you have learned in a simulated working environment.
