Overview

The Pre-College Architecture Program at Carnegie Mellon's School of Architecture is an intensive summer experience for students with a keen interest in architecture.

Over the course of six weeks, students will experience the interdisciplinary field of architecture through the lens of Carnegie Mellon’s School of Architecture (SoA) as well as contemporary practices.

Students will experience the dynamic of architectural education within the studio, supported by integrated coursework in analog drawing, digital media, seminars and workshops. This approach will allow for broader exploration of design issues related to the environment, technology as well as the future of our cities. During the second half of the program, specialized workshops on design portfolio development will be conducted as an introduction to techniques for layout design and content composition. Portfolio reviews with faculty and members of the SoA admissions committee will give students an opportunity to curate their work for college submissions.
