Students considering the Architecture Track should meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) for Architecture, Bimal Medis, during their first year at Yale, as well as the DUS for Computing and the Arts. The DUS for Architecture can advise students on sequences of courses to take within Architecture, substitutions that may be made, and potential project advisors. Students interested in this track are advised to take either CPSC 112 (a or b) or CPSC 201 and also one of the Architecture prerequisites in their first year at Yale.
CPSC 112a or b or CPSC 100a or b, ARCH 150a or b.
CPSC 201a or b, 202a, and 223b. Students are advised to complete CPSC 202a and 223b by the end of the sophomore year. MATH 224a may be substituted for CPSC 202a.
The architecture track requires the following courses in addition to the Computer Science courses listed above: (1) ARCH 154b, ARCH 249b, ARCH 260a, ARCH 261b, (2) two elective courses from Architectural History and Theory, Materials and Technology, or Structures and Computation; (3) two courses selected from CPSC 475b, 478b, and 479a (Computer Vision or Computer Graphics); (4) one additional intermediate or advanced computer science course (excluding CPSC 490a or b).
Specific courses for freshman interested in this track to consider:
ARCH 154 1 Drawing Architecture
ARCH 249 1 Analytic Model
CPSC 112 1 Introductory to Programming
CPSC 201 1 Intro to Computer Science
CPSC 202 1 Mathematical Tools for Computer Science
