Design Intelligence 2021

Build cool architecture

The 2021 DesignIntelligence surveys are now open. This annual process asks professionals, new alumni and current students a series of questions to track the quality of design education nationally, ultimately producing the America’s Top Ranked Architecture & Design Schools report. This ranking of undergraduate and graduate programs highlights which schools are best preparing students for professional practice.

Tulane School of Architecture students, alumni and friends are being asked to fill out the surveys and give feedback that will ensure that the outstanding work of our students and faculty are reflected in the rankings and that the school can have a solid benchmark by which to measure  progress now and into the future.

In one survey, architecture professionals are asked to share their perspectives on which schools are best preparing graduates for practice. Current students and new alumni who have graduated within the last 3 years are also invited to complete a separate survey on their educational experience and future plans. 

Please click the links below to fill out the survey(s) that best fit your current position or role. The deadline for surveys is July 2.
