The SWA Summer Student Program is an excellent opportunity for university students to learn, grow, have real-life design experiences.

Internships, part-time work, study abroad, and company summer programs are great ways to refine your professional direction. Take as many opportunities as you can to explore the arenas available to you through landscape architecture. We believe that our program may be one of the most important and enjoyable experiences you have in your early professional development. We encourage full-time students (returning Fall 2018) of landscape architecture, planning, and urban design to apply.

About the program

2017 Summer Program

Port of Houston

Hurricanes and cloudbursts are escalating environmental pressures on the growing populations of the Gulf Coast cities, while the Port of Houston remains their economic fulcrum. The second largest gateway of international trade in the US, its operations define regional economic trends, transform coastal environments, and affect local land uses and community life.  We will set out to understand the port’s material footprint on the region and catalyze a more intelligent intertwining of policy, economy, ecology and culture through the agency of design.
