The mission of the College of Design Construction and Planning (DCP) is to improve the quality of the built and natural environments through offering exceptional educational and professional programs and research/scholarship initiatives
that address the planning, design,construction, and preservation of the built and natural environments. DCP is composed of three schools: the School of Architecture, the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning, and the
M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Construction Management; the Department of Interior Design; the Program in Historic Preservation; and, the Program in Sustainability and the Built Environment. DCP is only one of six colleges in the
U.S. that combines all of the design and construction disciplines. This presents DCP students with a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary learning.
The School of Architecture recognizes design as a synthesis of thinking, analyzing and making — an iterative process that engages, issues of space, historical precedent, sustainability, ecology, urbanity, landscape, built-form, and construction toward innovation.
Construction management is the planning, coordination, and supervision of a project from beginning to completion. The core curriculum focuses on understanding the construction management process through a foundation of technical, managerial, and business courses.
Interior design is all about how we experience spaces. It’s a powerful, essential part of our daily lives and affects how we live, work, play, and even heal. Comfortable homes, functional workplaces, beautiful public spaces—that’s interior design at work.
