The College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) encompasses all the professions that come together in designing and implementing the built environment — architecture, engineering, city planning, construction and landscape. By bringing together these programs into one college, our students learn the specific knowledge and skills related to their chosen discipline while also gaining direct experience with the other fields they will later collaborate with in the workplace. CAED graduates are prepared to work globally on innovative teams that are on the leading edge of creating sustainable, beautiful surroundings. Our students go on to work for the private sector and local, state, and federal agencies as architects, engineers, planners, consultants, contractors and more. Major employers hail our graduates as among the best in the nation, saying that they are ready to take on challenges immediately and promote to leadership positions within a short time.
