Carnegie Mellon's School of Architecture Ranks First
In Sustainable Design, Says DesignIntelligence Magazine

PITTSBURGH — The Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture's undergraduate architecture program has been ranked first in the nation in sustainable design practices, fourth in computer applications and seventh overall by DesignIntelligence Magazine.

The rankings are based on surveys from architecture firms that have interviewed and hired recent graduates. The firms evaluated schools based on their professional impact and skill sets of their graduates.   

"The School of Architecture is proud that its graduates have made such an impact in the professional arena and that our emphasis on sustainability has been recognized," said Laura Lee, head of the School of Architecture. "We will continue innovating and adapting our programs so that our students are well prepared for the future in the fields of architecture and design."

A publication of the Design Futures Council, DesignIntelligence Magazine publishes industry news, research and trends. The Design Futures Council is made up of industry insiders from leading architecture, design and construction firms.

Carnegie Mellon's School of Architecture was founded in 1904. Today, undergraduates emerge from its professional degree program as individuals ready to excel in the multidisciplinary architecture profession. In the School of Architecture, students receive a studio-based education with one-on-one intensive teaching. More information on the School of Architecture and its programs is online at www.arc.cmu.edu.
