As an academic community with a strong professional orientation, we are committed to the advancement of integrated planning, design, construction, development, and investment through teaching, learning, and research in the built environments. Seattle is the perfect playground for our work as it is a leader in environmental, social, and health innovation. With access to an extensive network of top faculty, researchers, peers, alumni, and the community, you will form lasting connections. Our students are also actively engaged as campus and community leaders. They’re doing more than reading about positive changes; they’re the catalyst making change happen.
We value the traditions of design and community building. Through mixed discipline studios, travel programs, service learning projects, and research, you’ll build and grow your community in and outside of the classroom.
CBE students work in a variety of maker spaces on campus, from the fabrication labs and digital commons as well as off-campus opportunites via studios and international programs.
Build community, catalyze change
Students have many opportunities to engage both on campus and off through programs like Aspire, job site internships, academic clubs, and community projects.
