5330. PLANT IDENTIFICATION AND ECOLOGY
(2-4). Examines the ecology, growth characteristics, and design applications of
plant materials. Local field trips are required. Prerequisite: LARC 5301
or permission of instructor. Course Specific Fee: $20.
5331. PLANTING DESIGN (2-4). Design applications of
plant material. Students apply the design problem-solving approach to
the detailed aspects of planting design and complete a
progressively-more-difficult series of problems to practice techniques and methods
of plant manipulation that encompass both the aesthetic and
functional purposes of planting design. Prerequisites: LARC 5663, 5330,
and 5341, or permission of instructor. Lab fee: $2. Course Specific
5340. PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
(3-0). Ethical, legal, and administrative aspects of the public, private, and academic
spectrums of practice in landscape architecture.
5341. LANDSCAPE TECHNOLOGY I
(2-4). Surveying, site grading, storm water management, vertical and horizontal curves and
an overview of the construction documentation process employed
by landscape architects. Prerequisite: LARC 5301 or permission
of instructor. Lab fee: $2. Course Specific Fee: $22.
5342. LANDSCAPE TECHNOLOGY II
(2-4). Materials and techniques employed in the construction process. Materials
are examined through completion of design details that specify how
they can be used as part of a landscape construction. Detailed methods
of design evaluation such as drawings, scale models, and
actual construction sites are included. Prerequisite: LARC 5341
or permission of instructor. Lab fee: $2. Course Specific Fee: $22.
5343. LANDSCAPE TECHNOLOGY III
(2-4). Preparation of a set of construction drawings for a design project from a previous
studio. Layout, grading, irrigation, utilities, planting, construction,
detailing, specifications, and cost estimating. Prerequisite: LARC 5342
or permission of the instructor. Lab fee: $2.
5344. PARK AND RECREATION DESIGN AND PLANNING
(2-2). History, data collection, program formulation, and
design principles for public and private park and recreation systems
and sites. Includes management objectives, operations and
maintenance, and public input as planning components. Prerequisites: LARC
5320, 5661. Lab fee: $2. Course Specific Fee: $22.
5346. IRRIGATION TECHNIQUES
(2-4). The structural and technical aspects of irrigation design and application,
including effective use and care of native plant materials and designing
for native environments. Prerequisites: completion of
landscape architecture core, permission of the instructor.
5350. LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE COMPUTER
APPLICATIONS (2-4). Examines various computer applications currently used in
office practice. Computer applications used for office management,
site analysis, design development, construction documentation, and
cost estimating. Introduction to computer aided design applications
and the underlying theories of application. Lab fee: $2. Course
Specific Fee: $22.
5351. ADVANCED COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN
(2-4). Expansion of LARC 5350. Students complete a typical design problem
utilizing computer-aided methods; students examine the differences
between traditional manual methods of design and
computer-aided techniques. Instruction in data standards, methods of
translation, layering of design information, and connections between the
phases of the design process. Prerequisite: LARC 5350, or permission of
the instructor. Lab fee: $2. Course Specific Fee: $22.
