The Department of Architecture has placed undergraduate and graduate students in IAP externships across the country. This program, a long-held MIT tradition, allows students to work in leading architecture firms and research groups between the fall and spring semesters. This experience provides students with valuable hands-on training, an opportunity to improve design skills, receive alumni mentorship, and gain an inside look at architectural research and practice. This program strengthens professional connections between the alumni community and the student body, and often leads to offers of full-time employment.
This year's cohort of externs were placed in prominent design practices all across the country, including Snøhetta, Morphosis, OMA, and nArchitects.
