The options are endless, but we're created 6 specializations that cover a large range of viable options.

Design at the Intersection of Technology and Biology, Neri Oxman TED Talk
You love architecture in its simplest definition, and believe an architect is a master craftsman of our built world. You stare at buildings under construction or admire the beautiful ornamentation of an old church.

You look at our environment and see a potential for change. Our world is being consumed; humans are becoming parasites on this planet and we need solutions for our energy, water, and food crises.
