Summer Career Workshop

The Architecture Department offers an intensive 4-week in-residence workshop designed for high school students considering architecture as a career or developing a design portfolio. The Workshop provides an in-depth view of the career through hands-on experience in studio design exercises, lectures, projects and field trips. Activities cover architectural design and history, computer applications, structural engineering and site planning. Studios and lectures are taught by the faculty of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design. Education and career advising are integral elements of the program.

Participating students live in residence halls where they become familiar with the dynamics of campus life. The program typically runs mid June - mid July, and includes lodging, most meals, field trips and most materials.
