Design Build Certificate Details

The College of Architecture and Planning offers a graduate certificate in the emerging area of design build as an extension of the Master of Architecture program.

The design build certificate centers on the practical application of architectural theory and promotes a blend of hands-on skills, creative design, and cutting edge materials to construct buildings for communities in need. Participants receive a graduate certificate in design build that requires a total of 18 semester hours, all of which count toward the MArch curriculum requirements.

ColoradoBuildingWorkshop is the design build initiative of the Department of Architecture that serves the broader community by partnering with non-profit organizations on a variety of innovative projects. Learn more about the program and its projects on the Colorado Building Workshop website.
