Program objectives

The Building and Public Works program, specializing in Architectural Techniques and leading to an Attestation d’Études Collégiales (AEC), is based on two fundamental subjects; construction which involves; building science, knowledge of materials and proper procedures required to achieve every element of a building, and drafting which constitutes the instrument by which the Architect or the Civil Engineer expresses his ideas to the client as well as to the contractor who must execute the work.  In addition, the student is introduced to proper graphics language for each: the client and the contractor.

Advantages and benefits of the program

The training is purely technical. Its focus is on learning computer assisted drafting and cutting edge building technology, allowing for immediate entry into the workforce;

The size of the classrooms is kept  between 10 to 12 students per class.  This allows us to ensure that individual attention be given to each student, to follow respective learning procedures emphasizing the importance of communication and autonomy as a result;

After having completed just sixteen (16) months of training (four consecutive sessions) students are ready to enter into the workforce;

The training is first-rate given by highly qualified architects and engineers that are recognized by both l’Ordre des architectes du Québec and l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec.

  • Technology 85%
  • knowledge 95%
  • Comunication 99%
  • Training 95%
  • Workforce 93%

Our Work Flow

Teachers favour learning through a realistic, architectural project approach and put students in touch with the everyday workforce (visits to the corporate sector, worksites, lectures);

 The college offers its students use of a large drafting room and classes equipped with computers all with cutting-edge technology;
 Students are offered employment (part time) as early the third training session as well as small projects in order to promote integration into the workforce;

Graduates entering into the workforce may supplement their training with additional courses at a university level in order to open doors to other positions of a higher level;

The participation of administrative staff helps to ensure regular class attendance.  The college offers a warm and friendly environment while at same time disciplined. The premises are accessible to students at all times.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

1st Semester

Q60 Architectural Drafting

This course is about acquiring the skills, attitudes and fundamentals necessary for the production of architectural plans. This course comprehends the fundamentals of architectural drawing and sketching.

Q61 Wood Construction

This course will introduce students to the world of light wood framed construction, its many and varied elements, methods and techniques, as well as their influence on architectural design. The students will be expected to develop a new architectural vocabulary and a new visual awareness of the built environment.

Q62 AutoCAD 1

This course will familiarize students with the principles of computer-aided drafting (CAD), through the usage of AutoCAD 2015 software.

The course will provide students with “hands-on” computer experience, aiming to develop two-dimensional drawing skills.

By the end of the course students should be able to generate simple 2D drawings using AutoCAD 2015.

Q63 Applied Mathematics

The aim of this course is to provide the student with a solid knowledge of the mathematics that he/she will need on a daily basis in the field of Architecture. Although emphasis is given to Two-dimensional Trigonometry and Geometry, the student will also be given material to allow him/her to apply the mathematical knowledge acquired to math problems of an architectural nature. The emphasis of this course will be placed on problem solving.

Q75 Health and Safety in Construction Sites (45 hours)

The objective of the course is to develop a general understanding of the factors involved in the health and safety in construction sites.

2nd Semester

Q59 Sketching

The main objective of this course is to develop the ability to sketch freehand. This course will help students discover their ability to draw in a clear, realistic and aesthetic manner. Students will work diverse techniques towards planning and producing a sketch. They will learn how to select and prepare their drawing supplies.  They will develop their sense of observation, the ability to interpret objects in 2D &3D while becoming methodical and precise.

Q64 AutoCAD 2

The objective of this course is to master the tools and techniques in Computer Aided Drafting.

 

Q66 Residential Architectural Drafting

The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the conventions and practices required for the production of plans of wood frames required in residential architecture. In order to achieve this goal, the work in class and studio will be oriented towards drafting and completing a set of plans that could be used in the construction of a residential home.

 

Q70 Topometry

The main objective of this course is to train students in the proper usage of survey instruments.

Q72 Building Services

This course is about building services and their relationship with the architectural plan.  This course will cover:

 

·       Analysis and interpretation of plumbing and electrical drawings

·       Identifying the elements and understanding the functions of plumbing ventilation and heating systems,

·       Getting familiar with the codes related to plumbing, fire prevention and protection, heating, electricity, wiring, connections and lighting

·       Identify the general principles and requirements of heating and ventilation

3rd Semester

Q65 Concrete Construction

The objective of the course is to get acquainted with Concrete Design principles and to understand the use and application reinforcing bars in reinforced concrete.

Q67 Steel and Masonry Construction

The objective of the course is to get acquainted with the design and use of steel structures as well as masonry in construction.

 

Q71 Specifications

The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the role of the specifications, as part of the contract documents, in the realization of a construction project.

They will explore the principles, procedures and techniques used in the preparation of specifications, with emphasis on technical research. Students will become familiar with the divisions of the Master Format in a detailed level.

Q73 Structural Steel Drafting

The objective of the course is to produce a complete set of drawings for the construction of a steel structure building.

Q76 Revit-1

This course provides a solid background on Autodesk Revit Architecture. It shows students how to create, edit and manage the components in the design of a building.

 

4th Semester

Q68 Concrete Drafting

This course is about acquiring the skills, attitudes and fundamentals necessary to understand how to design, draw and understand concrete buildings.

Q69 Estimation (4

The objective of this course is to acquaint the student with the fundamentals of Construction Estimation and Costs of a Project. The aim is to develop a well-rounded guide to accurate cost estimating in the AEC industry by providing realistic methods based on standard practices.

Q74 Steel and masonry drafting

The objective of the course is to produce a complete set of drawings for the construction of a steel structure building.

Q77 Revit 2

The objective of this course is to master the tools and techniques in Autodesk Revit Architecture.
