Architectural Intern

Fort Wayne, Indiana

Our Architectural Internship program creates an opportunity for students to get exposure to a variety of projects in different phases of design while working side-by-side with other architects, engineers, interior designers, and other support staff. After being assigned a designated advocate, they will go through our internship training program and will get exposure to active architectural design projects within their first few weeks. Going through this program prepares students for future employment by giving them hands-on experience in this industry, experience working in a professional environment, and it is a great way to network with other design professionals.
