Students exhibiting at Falkirk Campus main reception
Top performance from architectural design students
Three students on the HND Computer Aided Architectural Design & Technology course at Forth Valley College secured the gig for an architectural showcase recently.
Dave Jordan (29, Alloa), Chris Paton (22, Linlithgow) and Jordan Anderson (21, Linlithgow) were all selected to display their Graded Unit projects in the reception area of the College’s Falkirk Campus after impressing Ian McRae with their designs for a new concert venue at Callander Park in Falkirk.
Their work is being displayed from Monday 6 June – 10 June 2016.
Lecturer Ian McRae said, “These students have gone above and beyond the brief and really pushed the boundaries. This exhibition is an opportunity to showcase the excellent quality of their work and also show others what the HND Computer Aided Architectural Design & Technology course involves.”
Student Dave Jordan said, “This was a really exciting brief and allowed us to combine all the knowledge we had gained throughout the course. Although it was challenging at times, it has been a really good experience before taking our next step whether to university or employment.
“I am now hoping to study architectural engineering at university and hopefully find some work as a CAD Technician at an architectural firm. Engineering is the dream and this course has been really beneficial for me. We’ve learnt lots through projects based on real life circumstances and we have developed a good awareness of rules, regulations and industry standards. It’s set us up nicely for our futures.”
