The Architecture Department coordinates learning-by-working with Washington design workplaces which employ and advise students as Summer interns, in experiences consistent with the NCARB Intern Development Program (IDP) to support preparation for architect licensure, per IDP guidelines.
These Seattle-area offices have employed one or more UW Architecture student interns in their design workplaces:
Ankrom Moisan, Bassetti Architects, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Callison, Carbon Leadership Forum, Coates Design, Craft Architects, DLR Group, Donnally Architects, EHS Design, Environmental Works, GGLO, Graham Baba, Hinthorne Mott, Integrated Design Lab, Integrus Architecture, JAS Design-Build, Johnston Architects, LMN Architects, Mahlum, Miller|Hull, Mithun, MG2, Olson Kundig Architects, NBBJ, Patano Studio, Perkins+Will, Rohleder Borges Architects, Schacht/Aslani, SHKS Architects, SRG Partnership Inc., Stephen Sullivan Designs, UW Capital Projects Office, VIA Architecture, Weber Thompson, Weinstein A+U, William Zimmerman Architects, ZGF Architects LLP
Background: Beginning Summer 2011, UWArchPAC mounted 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 MArch program. 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 advisor.
