summary The quartet project is a four-week programme undertaken by all first year B.Sc Architecture students at the Welsh School of Architecture. It takes place early in the first semester and is designed to encourage students to develop a series of transferable skills. The cohort is divided into four groups, and the groups rotate around four different activities on a weekly basis. One of these activities is CAD/IT and aims to equip students with the necessary understanding of the potential and limitations of using computers as part of their studies, with emphasis on the creative use of the technology. Throughout the week links with the other three activities are heavily stressed and students use computers within all four activities to some extent. Using examples of students' work from the past two years, this paper aims to assess the CAD/IT element of the project, and how it connects with the other activities. It then looks at how the skills developed during the week are utilised by the students during the remainder of their time in the school.
