America’s Top Ranked Architecture & Design Schools from DesignIntelligence offers a perspective from three key audiences: the professionals who hire architecture and design graduates; the deans, program chairs, and department heads who help form architecture and design education; and the students and recent graduates who have an up-close view of the architecture and design school experience.
The hiring professionals tell DesignIntelligence about the schools they most admire, the ones they hire from the most, and how recent graduates are performing in 12 key focus areas such as design theory and practice, design technology, and communication skill. Deans, program chairs, and department heads submit information about major changes in their course offerings, while current and recently graduated students of architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture programs offer their perspective on the quality of the programs they studied in and how prepared they feel in key skill areas.
