With a few days separating us from the beginning of 2017, we present to you the new rankings of the Top 10 Architectural Schools in the US by DesignIntelligence. New procedures have been introduced to the evaluation process of graduate and undergraduate programs, this year. A survey was conducted among professional practice leaders, from more than 2,000 firms. They were asked to list the top 10 architecture schools that are best preparing students for a successful future in the profession.

Also, the opinions of more than 2,785 students about the quality of their programs and their post-graduate plans were taken into consideration. Then finally, add to that the comprehensive data on the best programs that teach design skills, computer applications, sustainability, and construction methods & materials.

The 2017 ranking carried no surprises, with Cornell undergraduate and Harvard graduate schools keeping their top positions on both lists.
