2018 DV3x2 Intern Application


2018 DV3x2 Firm Application (coming soon)


The AIA Austin Design Voice Committee began the DV3x2 Internship program in 2009. Since then, 29 students and 24 firms have participated in the program. DV3x2 was initiated to give high school students interested in design a glimpse of the daily life of a design office prior to delving into a university program.

The Design Voice 3x2 (DV3x2) Internship offers participants the opportunity to intern with designers at a minimum of 3 different Austin design firms for one week during the summer. At each firm, the interns shadow the designers for 2 hours - learning about their processes and office culture to experience the daily life at a design firm. Many design discipline types are offered in the program; including Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning and Design, Interior Design, Graphic Design, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Structural Engineering.
