Internship Experience

The objective of the internship experience is to provide students with the opportunity to apply and use the skills, knowledge, and information learned in their academic coursework within the professional workplace. Internships have a range of durations:  semester, summer, and resident student interns.  At STG Design, we aim to fully engage the intern in all aspects of the workplace, giving a wide variety of experiences and a glimpse into the professional world of commercial architecture and interior design.
