You will get to meet the students see their work as you review their portfolios.  The students would like your advice on how they can improve their portfolios as they prepare to begin their job search for their first UC co-op or their first co-op in the Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Bachelor of Interior Design or Master of Architecture program.

Dates allow exposure to both Architecture and Interior Design students.
