Career Day

Career Day 2019 - Friday, February 8

Penn State’s Stuckeman School Career Day is a vibrant event that enables professional firms to interact directly with the School’s award-winning students. The event presents a series of opportunities that encourage discovery, student engagement, and networking with alumni and professionals across the architecture, landscape architecture, and graphic design professions.

Our programs are consistently ranked among the top design programs in the country. Undergraduate programs (B.L.A., B.Arch., B.Design) and two- and three-year professional graduate programs (M.L.A., M.Arch.) cultivate students who are technically prepared to make an immediate impact in professional practice. The research-focused graduate programs (M.S. in L.A., M.S. in Arch., and Ph.D.) encourage our students towards deep investigations of complex problems.

Registration is now closed for Career Day 2019.
