At the turn of the 21st century, the advent of advanced software from conceptual development of 3D simulation and analytic tools have been developed to aid the development of various architectural presentation techniques and obtain digital optimization. Data was collected from students currently in MSc 1 and 2, using a structured questionnaire and analyzed by using descriptive statistics shows that more men use CAD than the women. A high percentage of MSc students are youths. Most MSc students make use of their computers most times when they are opportune, and those who do this are more likely to keep improving and adapting to various CAD skills and are able to troubleshoot and come up with solutions to problems they would face in those software. Timing for the completion of a CAD design is dependent on skills, the availability of appropriate software/hardware and constant power. This shows that, power supply is a key factor to consider. The information from the questionnaire showed that MSc students who are single have more time and are more focused to practice their skills with various CAD software of which those used in this study are Sketchup, Revit, AutoCAd, ArchiCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Rhino 3D, Vectorworks Architect, 3D Studio Max, Lumion, V-ray, CorelCAD, Corel Draw, Catia, Briscard BIM, MicroStation, Credeo, Twinmotion, Unreal Engine, All Plan, Emscape, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Blender. The impact of these tools on their architectural development were measured based on their projects presented in school. The impact enables understanding of the implication of introducing such software to the school curriculum and creates room for more advancement in this research such as 3D printing or VR (virtual reality), which represents the future of architectural visualization.
