Construction Management Facilities

The computer lab (Knoblauch Hall 106) for Construction Management provides for a learning environment for state-of-the-art computer hardware and software in support of the construction curricula. The most updated version of AutoDesk software is equipped on all the computers for students' learning. The students are expected to learn basic graphic and communication skills to present design ideas as architectural engineers, and utilize building information modeling (BIM) as an integrated and improved approach to a construction project in design and decision making.

Graphic Communication Facilities

The Graphic Communication program at Western Illinois University teaches both theory and practice. Classes are offered at the Macomb campus in Knoblauch Hall. Graphic Communication students aren’t just expected to learn software programs, but to develop skills in critical-thinking, management, and problem-solving.

Two Macintosh computer labs provide students with applied use of the latest, industry-standard software. Color laser and a wide-format printer is also available. The production lab allows students the chance to try offset duplicators and screen printing.
