Trajectories: Networks of Architectural Education focuses on professional undergraduate training at the School of Architecture. We want to find out how our undergraduates use their education: What careers paths do they take? How has their education at McGill shaped their lives?
Using data we collect from a short survey, we will map and visualize the career paths our alumni have taken. We want to understand the multiple ways architecture is practiced, and to highlight the varied careers architectural education can lead to.
This study will also be of interest because architectural education typically creates one vision of the future for students; a professional practitioner working in an office or individually. However, with this visualization of the alumni trajectories, we will also allow professionals and prospective students alike to view the vastness of their potential connections and discover new paths for their careers.
This information is crucial to the School's educational mission of training the future leaders of the field.
