In the Summer of 2011, UW Architecture’s Professionals Advisory Council (PAC) began a pilot program of paid internships in Seattle-area design offices, with the primary intention of offering an introduction to the design workplace to students completing the first year of the Department’s 3+ year M.Arch program. The matching of eligible applicants with available workplace openings achieves student placements for 320-400 hours of employment. Generally following the guidelines of the National Council of Architect Registration Boards (NCARB) Experience Requirements directed toward architect licensing, workplace supervisors monitor and mentor interns, in liaison with and reporting students’ experience to a Department faculty adviser. In the Summer of 2016, 25+ M.Arch students took part in internships through this program.
See the PAC website for current information.
