With nationally ranked programs and a vision that combines intellectual curiosity and ambition with professional practice, it is no wonder that graduates of the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture are in high demand. In fact, 91% of the graduating class in 2019 who pursued employment reported finding a job in the months after graduation; 2% opted to pursue graduate studies.
The employment reports listed below compile the job placement of UT Austin School of Architecture alumni six months after graduation. Each report organizes jobs by degree and includes employer name, position title, and location for each graduate while maintaining individual confidentiality. Firms or organizations that employ multiple graduates from the same program are identified by an asterisk. A salary breakdown is included for programs where adequate data was received.
The School of Architecture highly encourages students to pursue professional opportunities prior to graduation and many of our students complete internships. Please see below for our summer internship reports:
*Data is compiled every 3 years.
