This course adds an academic dimension to professionally supervised field experiences in which problems in architectural design and technology are defined, researched, and solved. Advanced doctoral students are introduced to applied research processes in any of architecture's sub-disciplines. Sites of applied research may include commercial firms, not-for-profit organizations, and government agencies. Students work in school-approved firms or agencies of their choice. Written accounts of work accomplished, documentation of research questions developed and pursued, and reflective experiential learning reports must be submitted for evaluation. Field experiences may be part time or full time. 0 graduate hours. No professional credit. Approved for S/U grading only. May be repeated for up to 11 months total of training. This course is intended to facilitate CPT in professionally focused environmental design research for students in the PhD program. Prerequisite: Required research methods course (ARCH 505/LA 505 or ARCH 563/LA 563 or equivalent) and approval of both PhD program chair and student's PhD adviser. For PhD students who have completed stage 1 of coursework.
