SCI-Arc Ranks Among Top 10 Architecture Schools for 2020 DesignIntelligence Survey

DesignIntelligence has published the complete list of its 2020 survey results ranking architecture schools in the United States. This year, SCI-Arc received top 10 positions in all 12 focus areas surveyed—including #2 in design technologies and #3 most hired from school in the country—and was ranked among the nation’s most admired undergraduate architecture programs.

DesignIntelligence is an independent company that has carried out an annual survey for the past 20 years, asking hiring managers of architecture and design firms where the greatest number of their newest employees within the last five years attended school, as well as what schools they most admire for a combination of faculty, programs, culture, and student preparation for the profession.

“Though we are not moved or inspired by rankings, they are a useful indicator for understanding the success of the school from the perspective of the world beyond our walls, as well as a substantial piece of information for future applicants and their families,” says SCI-Arc Director Hernán Díaz Alonso.

“SCI-Arc’s consistent positioning within the rankings of DesignIntelligence is a testament to the remarkable work being done by our students, faculty, and alumni,” adds Díaz Alonso. “We are continually driven to keep those in the SCI-Arc community of past, present, and future proud of what we can and do accomplish here.”
