Expo Tues, Wed

leave a comment »

You may step out of part of studio today and tomorrow for Expo.  ***Best if you can be there at the beginning of our class-time.

Firms that I recognize and have specifically visited the ArchE program in the past:

NOTE:  This list is a result of me quickly scanning the list for firms that I remember have hired UT ArchE’s in the past.  That doesn’t mean that the other Expo firms are not good candidates…

Arup
ARCO/Murray Design Build
Austin Commercial
BuroHappold Engineering
Dow Chemical  (Building Solutions group)
Fluor
Hensel Phelps
Hilti
HKS, Inc.
HOK
Jacobs
JE Dunn Construction
L. A. Fuess Partners
Linbeck Group, LLC.
Rogers-O Brien Construction Co
Turner Construction (visit with alum Seita Goto)

OTHER FIRMS NOT AT EXPO –
There are many top AE firms not present at Expo – don’t assume that your internships / employment are restricted to the Expo list of firms.
