Ask the Experts | Problem-Solving Scenarios: Codes and Construction


Solve design challenges and learn key on-the-job skills to benefit you in your first professional role.

Internships give you the opportunity to work directly with practitioners to solve design problems, exchange ideas, and see how they would approach a solution. The Problem-Solving Scenarios give you a similar opportunity to tackle on-the-job challenges, designing solutions that incorporate your knowledge of codes in the construction process. Provided by practitioners from the ASID Advocate by Design Council, the scenarios represent the type of tasks typically assigned to new designers, giving you a valuable chance to practice what you’ve learned in school. 

This is a recording of a webinar presented on June 29, 2021.
