• Thank you for your input! I actually just got off the phone with a friend who is a current student and, coincidentally enough, she said something similar to what you shared. This new perspective definitely has me leaning toward Harvard, based on my career goals.

  • I never meant to imply that I would be the person doing all of the work. I meant to say I would have the background and skillset to be part of each stage of the project. That means I could work with a team and give input on the environmental chemistry as well as the master planning. Does that make sense?

  • “…our job is to synthesize information into a well orchestrated, beautiful symphony of disciplines and specialties.”
    I think that was beautifully put. That really makes sense. I’m still doing plenty of exploring on my end to figure out what my own strengths are and which field I may be more drawn to. But I’ll hold that statement in my mind as I…[Read more]

  • I understand where you’re coming from but I think you are segmenting the fields a little more than necessary.
    Yes the way of thinking/approaching a problem is definitely different. Yes, they achieve different goals. However, I still fail to see why a union between civil engineering and architecture is more accepted than one between environmental…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the perspective.
    I know it sounds like I want to be the “one stop shop” but I think I’m unsuccessfully trying to ask about the PE/RLA experience. What is that combination like? Do the two fields even combine well? Is the work a balance of both or do you still have to ‘choose a side’?
    I’m glad you emphasize work because I am starting to…[Read more]

  • I understand what you are saying. If I work in a firm that, for example, has an engineering department and landscape architecture department, then my tasks have a chance to become more blended.
    Are you telling me that there are positions where LAs are a part of the analysis of the site, determination and implementation of the remediation method as…[Read more]
