Apply for the 2020 CMG Summer Internship!

2020 CMG Summer Internship Program is now accepting applications. Are you a motivated and creative individual looking for a chance to work with a group of passionate and innovative designers? Join the CMG Landscape Architecture team to work on a variety of landscape and urban design projects this summer!

During the 10-week internship program, you will have the opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge by working with a local landscape architecture design firm in San Francisco. Interns contribute to design conversations, visit project sites currently under construction, and are exposed to the breadth of the design process from concept to construction. CMG’s summer internship is an excellent opportunity to apply your Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCAD, and Google Sketch Up skills to local and regional projects around the Bay Area.

In addition to gaining valuable project and design office work experience, CMG interns investigate research topics relating to the landscape architecture profession. Previous research topics explored topics related to the sociological analysis of public space and the ecological impact of sea level rise. 2019 CMG Summer Interns produced “Emergent Ecologies of the Bay Edge: Adaptation to Climate Change and Sea Level Rise,’ which investigated potential impacts of climate change to intertidal habitat around the San Francisco Bay edge. Read more about their experience here.

If you are a landscape architecture or architecture student with at least one semester remaining prior to graduation, we hope that you will consider joining us and experience how CMG is working to support social and ecological wellbeing through artful design.

What past interns have to say about the CMG Summer Internship:

“I feel more confident going into school with new skill set that I’ve established here.”

“Through ten weeks of internship, I learned about office structure, design corporation and stakeholder engagement process”
