We were the first Steel Design course ('91)to be taught *LRFD* at CPSLO and I believe CE's are still taught LRFD in there Steel Design course now. Although for a different course, Senior Design, as one of three projects we were required to design a four story steel moment frame in which we were taught and used ASD for it's design mainly because a different prof believed we should know ASD too. He had given us the option of using LRFD for the SMF but i think most students used ASD since he favored it (he was a very practical SE, in fact he still liked WSD for concrete too...). So, we (CE's) got a double dose. LRFD and ASD in school (CPSLO). But for it's practical application and familiarity by a certain prof, it seemed that ASD was pushed. As far as ARCHE's go at CPSLO, I think they always have, and still do teach only ASD. By the way, at CPSLO these two majors are in different Schools (called Colleges now): CE's in the College of Engineering, and ARCHE's in the College of Architecture.
