Architecture practicums (known outside British Columbia as 'internships') are open to 3rd and 4th year architecture students with intermediate (or better) knowledge of Auto CAD. Placements are done at architecture firms and in some cases with property developers. You will work under close supervision of senior architects and use your AutoCAD skills to assist with structural designs. You may do detailed work, or over all concept and 3d design. Each day you will keep a log of your work and review this on a regular basis with your on-site supervisors. Some architecture firms also include tutorials and site tours for their interns.
