cool. yeah its slightly different here... I'm a second year Part 1 student for a Bsc Hons in Architecture studying towards my RIBA qualification which I assume the equivelent would be your AIA. I have heard about that programme but never tried it. My Uni tends to concentrate more on the legislation and Law sides of things. I have just been testing out Revit so will be using that next year, Sketch up drives me insane!!! the more detailed the image the slower it gets!
