LCCC to offer architecture courses


The Wyoming chapter of the American Institute of Architects is working with Laramie County Community College to make it easier for Wyoming residents to become licensed architects.

The Institute’s president-elect Chet Lockard says UW does not have an accredited architectural design program, and he says that’s a problem.

“Students have to leave the state of Wyoming to complete their architectural education,” Lockard said. “Often times they don’t return.”

Starting this fall, LCCC will start offering coursework that will fulfill the first two years of required courses for getting an architecture degree. They’ll still have to travel out of state after that, to finish their education, but Lockard says this program is a start. He says he hopes that in the future, UW will start offering an accredited architectural design program.
