Eleven students – all female – worked on a real-life architectural project that provided them with work experience and hands-on architectural experience.
The four-day program at Suffolk County Community College, funded by a grant to encourage women to pursue technology-related careers, enabled students to prepare preliminary designs for a new, moderate-sized home in Mattituck.
The project demonstrated to the students the process architects typically go through in analyzing the site, researching local and state codes, and designing a building in multiple phases. The group also reviewed New York State’s education and work experience requirements related to obtaining an architectural professional license.
