Professional Opportunities Program

The Professional Experience Program (PEP) is transforming to reflect the realities of contemporary Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Design firms. Renamed the Professional Opportunities Program, the new opportunities are structured to align with the various office deadlines for existing summer internships, and an interest from firms to assess applicants directly.

The transformation means that the faculty will no longer review portfolios, but rather, the faculty will host links to various firms that have indicated interest in receiving applications from Daniels students.

It will be the responsibility of students to investigate each opportunity, apply based on individual office requirements, along with being aware and prepared for VISA requirements and local pay regulations.

Instructions for applying are listed below, or via links.

This year’s Professional Opportunities Program participants are:

PWP Landscape Architecture 2017 Summer Internship

http://www.pwpla.com/internship

PWP Landscape Architecture is seeking exceptional Landscape Architecture students for the 2017 Summer Internship. New this year, the internship application process is entirely online!

PWP has a long-standing commitment to linking education and practice. Since the inception of the firm, PWP has offered an internship program that provides students an opportunity for immersion in the working environment of a firm committed to built work. The PWP Internship Program allows students to gain exposure to the inner workings of PWP and our team. The students are not the only ones who benefit from the internship experience…the staff welcomes the energy, enthusiasm, and fresh thinking that the students bring.

Every summer, several students are inserted into project teams where they experience all aspects of a project, from concept through construction documents, in order to understand the real world application of their studies. 

City Planning, Urban Design, City of Toronto
Toronto Public Spaces Public Life Winter Study

A high quality public realm that supports vibrant public life is essential to making downtown and nearby neighbourhoods inviting places to live, work, and play. This winter, Gehl Studio along with Public Work, the City of Toronto, and Park People will lead an ethnographic architectural analysis of the area using Gehl’s Public Space Public Life Survey.

The survey will help to better understand who uses the area’s public spaces – streets and sidewalks included – and what they do when they’re there. A greater understanding of people's behaviour will help to influence people-oriented planning and policy that inspires creative, people-first designs in Toronto's public spaces.

To learn more about how to become a volunteer and what is involved, please visit our registration page.
