Supported by our Chapter:
Workshop “Reality Check: Practice, Internships and Start-ups after an Architecture and Design Education”
Employers in architecture, planning and design often find that there is a disconnect in skills expectations for recent graduates. Graduates entering the workforce in these fields often report being absolutely dismayed at the professional environments they arrive in. What elements are contributing most to this dissonance? What can be done to bridge a possible chasm between academia and the professional world? How can we prepare our alumni for start-up initiatives in the professional or academic world?
On March 28th 2018 from 5-7 p.m., join KU Leuven NYhub, along with the General Delegation of the Government of Flanders to the USA and Belcham, the Belgian-American Chambre of Commerce, for a unique workshop on the interaction between the academic and professional environment in the field of architecture, planning and design. The workshop will bring together professionals, alumni, academic staff and master dissertation students from both New York City and visiting from KU Leuven, Faculty/Department of Architecture Ghent/Brussels with the intention to spark a candid debate on what strategies can be adopted to integrate the most needed professional skills into academic learning outcomes.
Place: Flanders House New York (NY Times building, 620 Eighth Avenue, 44th Floor, between 40th & 41st Street) (please bring photo ID)
Please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 22nd.
