This demonstration includes problem identification, setting evaluative criteria, analyzing solution.

Program Specific Outcome 14:Critical thinking: Demonstrate critical thinking through a self-reflective process of conceptualization and design thinking that is open to consideration of alternative perspectives by analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing ideas.

Program Specific Outcome 15:Building Design Criteria: The knowledge and ability to apply a design decision-making process through appropriate technical documentation in a manner that is client-centered,  sustainable, aesthetic, cost effective, and socially responsible.

Program Specific Outcome 16: Building Systems Knowledge: Incorporate a wide range of technical skills and professional architectural knowledge during schematic design to demonstrate a comprehensive application of life safety, accessibility, and sustainability issues across varying scales and levels of complexity.

Program Specific Outcome 17: Integrated Architectural Solutions: Demonstrate the ability to synthesize a wide range of variables into an integrated design solution by employing appropriate building materials, building systems, and construction practices grounded in environmental sustainable practices across varying scales of systems and levels of complexity.
