A solid oxide fuel cell having a multichannel electrode architecture and method for preparing the same, the method including forming a first carbon laden composition, including a first thermoplastic binder, into a rod, applying a first zirconia laden composition, including a second thermoplastic binder, onto the rod to form a composite feed rod, extruding the composite feed rod to form a controlled geometry filament, bundling the extruded composite feed rod to form a multicellular feed rod, extruding the multicellular feed rod to form a multicellular rod, cutting the multicellular rod into multicellular discs, applying a zirconia laden material to one surface of a multicellular discs to form a multicellular structure, and heating processing the multicellular structure. The fuel cell is completed by adding anode and cathode materials to the multicellular structure.
