Professional Experience Programs

Professional Experience Programs

Architecture and Interiors students have the opportunity to work at design firms over spring break. These programs place students in firms for 1-2 weeks to garner professional experience, develop professional networks, and to contribute to the firms' projects.
 
The program has offered students the opportunity to utilize their educational experience to engage in a variety of collaborative, design-related assignments including executing research, attending staff or client meetings, making site visits, producing drawings and models, and/or selecting materials and products.
