Within the limited resources that Wellesley Architecture majors can count on for software training this is one of the most important workshop one could participate in for the degree, and it should be mandatory for all students seeking such a degree. Wellesley students should not have to be so dependent on the MIT experience to obtain a degree of significance in the architectural medium; Or it should not pretend to offer a degree in some field that students are not fully ready to encounter.
