According to a survey by DesignIntelligence, the School of Architecture ranks second in the nation for student satisfaction. Watch the video above for a taste of what it’s like to be an architecture student at UT Austin.

Harvard University was ranked first, followed by The University of Texas at Austin, Rice University, Cornell University and Syracuse University.

Based on input from more than 2,000 architecture graduates, the survey asked students to rank the quality of their program overall and asked whether they believed they were prepared for their profession upon graduation. Eighty-seven percent of the students at The University of Texas at Austin ranked the architecture program as excellent and 98 percent said they were prepared for their profession upon graduation.

“The students, faculty and staff at the School of Architecture form a close community devoted to preparing our students for futures in high-quality design and urbanism,” said Fritz Steiner, dean of the School of Architecture. “It is an honor to be included in such respected company, and we are pleased that our students have given us a resounding vote of confidence.”

The complete rankings were published June 20. DesignIntelligence is the Design Futures Council’s bi-monthly research publication.
