FAU School of Architecture Summer Institute

2015 Summer Institute


For summer 2015 the Architecture Summer Institute will be offering two tracks on the FAU Boca Raton Campus. The dates for both tracks will be posted by December 2014. The program will be open to rising sophomores, juniors or seniors in high school; recent high school graduates; and students in their first two years of college. All students with or without design background are welcome. This program is not for college credit but students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

Throughout the program, students will produce a variety of work that can be used as part of a portfolio when applying to colleges. Students will have the opportunity to display and participate in a final critique of their work. Enrollment is on a first-come, first served basis, space is limited.


Daily Schedule

The schedule is 9am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Participants will engage in space planning, drawing, and model building. Participants will also have the opportunity to take field trips to visit local architecture firms as well as the downtown Fort Lauderdale campus where the upper division architecture program is located. Interaction with faculty members and upper division architecture students help to provide a foundation for a memorable architectural school experience.
