ABOUT

The SDC Team: 2018
The Student Design Clinic (SDC) has had many alumni through the years who got their start working on real projects with real clients here. Some worked for one summer, and some came back to work for four or five summers during their years at the School of Architecture, Carleton University. In 2016 the SDC invited graduates of the Architectural Technologist program at Algonquin College to participate, and in 2017 we opened the summer studio to students currently enrolled in second year of the Technician/Technologist stream at Algonquin, and the Bachelor/Masters of Architecture Design and/or Conservation and Sustainability stream at Carleton. 

Our team from 2017!
The 2017 team

For 2018, we're hiring! All our staff placements, except the Student Manager, can be new hires each year, although we often have returning students if they are still eligible.  We hire students from both Carleton University and Algonquin College. The Assistant Manager will take on the role of Student Manager next year, so there is continuity in the management scheme. To be updated once hiring is completed.

Student Manager 
Sara is our Student Manager for 2018. She is completing her Bachelor degree in Architecture at Carleton University's School of Architecture. She is also an Intern at a local Heritage Conservation non-profit, she obviously likes to keep busy. She is a dear! 

Assistant Manager
We're hiring! All our staffing except the Student Manager are new hires each year.  We hire students from both Carleton University and Algonquin College. The Assistant Manager will take on the role of Student Manager next year, so there is continuity in the management scheme. To be updated once hiring is completed.

Designers
We're hiring! Per above, most of our design staff are new hires each year. Sometimes the Designers return to their position each summer they are in school to continue to augment their skills and business savvy. Each year we try to bring new designers on staff to share the knowledge base and gain new experience opportunities. In 2017 we had three Designers from Carleton University and three from Algonquin College!

Our Clients
Our clients are the best. They are as diverse as our staff! Some are trying to do a small scale repair, some are looking for a new cottage or home. Some are working with a small budget and some are coming to the SDC because they want to give a student the opportunity to design a unique project...regardless to their reason, we love them!

Board of Directors
The Board of Directors of the Student Design Clinic are passionate about helping students gain real world experience in the field of Architectural Design. They are aware of the challenges facing new graduates to find work, and clients with limited budgets to find designers...its a perfect fit.
