(light music) – Architecture is an
incredibly challenging, rewarding discipline to study. Auburn University School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture, stands out because it’s a school dedicated to professional education. We teach students how to
become excellent professionals. – [Narrator] The College of Architecture, Design and Construction,
houses the most nationally ranked and recognized programs
under one college at Auburn. The NAAB accredited five-year
program prepares students to be valuable assets on the
job site or in the office. And DesignIntelligence has
ranked our architecture program as nineth in the country. – Auburn is a place where
you find excellent students. Our students are curious,
they’re inventive, and they’re innovative. – [Narrator] The studios
are an open environment, which encourages the use
of student collaboration, and promotes a work-like atmosphere. Students understand
the studio camaraderie, which allows them to be
themselves comfortably within the design studios
and among their peers. – The opportunity to
cultivate friendships, not only within students in your cohort, it’s nice because once you
cultivate those friendships you also get to study
abroad, and go on trips with not only people in your
class, but your best friends. – For their third year,
students have options that involve community-based design, outreach, and also study abroad in Europe. This allows the students to
interact with other people and more specifically,
architecture that they will typically see in textbooks. – [Narrator] In addition to
study abroad opportunities, third year, and fifth
year architecture students can study at Rural Studio
in Newbern, Alabama, or Urban Studio in Birmingham, Alabama. (light music) – I’ve been to Japan,
San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Alabama, Montgomery,
Alabama, Birmingham, so it’s pretty nice ’cause you
get to sort of go everywhere and learn about, not only architecture, but also demographics
in the city’s history. – Another option for third
year students is that they can begin their duel
degree in Interior Architecture. It is typically a more in-depth studio. A lot of students further
more their careers, in terms of interior
design, within larger firms or small firms, and there
are lots of specialties that these students are able to proceed in because of the skills that they’ve earned in the interior architecture program. – [Narrator] We encourage
the use of drawing (muffled) both by hand and through
the use of information technology programs, such
as AutoCADS, SketchUp, Photoshop, and many more. – 96% of students find
employment after graduation. Students leave here with
a great understanding of the techniques about
which architecture is made. – The many opportunities
that I’ve had here at Auburn have allowed me to build
myself, not only as an architecture student,
but surely as a person. And I believe that that
is a very valuable factor in terms of making me a good
professional for others, but also personally to
my goals in architecture. (light music)
