At the CED, you will cultivate not only the skills you need for professional design and practice, but your individual talent it takes to be Prepared to Shape Our World.
We will challenge you to:
- explore your unique interests and creatively solve contemporary issues by working with faculty and, in some cases, local communities through design charettes.
- interact with clients, community organizations, and planning agencies. We will connect you with a large and accomplished alumni network as closely as possible.
- network with visiting professors, professionals, and lecturers and learn from renowned designers in a broad range of studies and careers.
- critically reflect on past and present design, planning, and preservation practices and propose ways in which design, planning and preservation can be a positive force for social and environmental change.
