A team of faculty and industry professionals from six of Central Florida’s top architectural planning and design firms evaluated the students’ best sketches, renderings and 3-D models. The judging criteria included design process, design resolution and communication skills.

The partnership between Valencia and UCF allows students to take two years of classes as Valencia students and two years as UCF students. Students then have the option to pursue a master’s degree at the University of Florida (UF) College of Design program based in UCF’s Center for Emerging Media in downtown Orlando or at another institution.

Admission decisions for the Bachelor of Design in Architecture program will be announced on April 30. The program starts this fall at UCF Valencia West with a class of at least 32 students.
