1.Transcripts and Evaluations

US Institutions

A scanned transcript from each US college or university attended for credit must be uploaded into the application. In addition, you must have one official transcript (sealed and stamped) from each college or university attended for credit sent directly to the PennDesign Office of Admissions, 110 Meyerson Hall, 210 South 34th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6311. Alternatively, we will accept official electronic transcripts sent directly from the US institution to us at admissions@design.upenn.edu.

Non-US Institutions

Applicants completing undergraduate and/or graduate degrees from institutions outside of the United States or that have completed more than one year of study for credit at a non-US institution are required to submit a BASIC course-by-course evaluation from World Education Services. http://www.wes.org/. You do not need to send us an official transcript from your school. If you are admitted to your program before you have received your undergraduate degree, you will be required to submit a second WES evaluation or upgrade showing your conferred degree prior to entering the School of Design in the fall.

Study Abroad Programs. An applicant receiving a degree from a US college or university who has participated in a study abroad program does not need to submit a WES evaluation for that program IF the course names and grades from the program abroad appear on their main transcript. If the course names and grades from the exchange program do not appear on their main transcript and they attended the program for only one or two semesters, they may have the study abroad institution send us an official (paper) transcript instead of submitting a WES evaluation. However, if the study abroad program was longer than two semesters, they must submit a WES course-by-course evaluation from the study abroad program in addition to their official main transcript.

2. Letters of Recommendation

You must submit three letters of recommendation with at least two from college instructors. Applicants who have been out of school for several years may submit recommendations from employers or others in a position to evaluate their professional abilities and academic potential. You will need your evaluators’ e-mail addresses when you fill out the recommendation section of the application.

3.Personal Statement

You must upload a personal statement, no more than 500 words long, describing your background, interest in your field, and your academic and career objectives. You should be as specific as you can about the area in which you plan to study. If you are an MFA applicant, you should include your ideas, as well as the stylistic and conceptual priorities for your work.

4. Résumé

You must upload a résumé including employment, activities, community service, education, and academic or professional honors.

5.Digital Portfolio

A digital portfolio must be submitted for applicants to Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Fine Arts, and Urban Design programs as well as the post-professional MSD: Historic Preservation program. Applicants to the Master of City Planning with a Concentration in Urban Design are strongly encouraged to submit a portfolio of their design work although it is not required. All work in the portfolio, including images and concepts, must be original material created by you, and should be identified as academic, professional, or personal. If professional or team projects are included in the portfolio, you must clearly identify your specific role and responsibility in the production of the project. Labels and writing should clearly explain the work. Paper portfolios are not accepted.

Architecture, MSD, and Landscape Architecture Portfolios

Every applicant to the Master of Architecture, Master of Science in Design (Advanced Architectural Design, Environmental Building Design, and Historic Preservation concentrations), Master of Landscape Architecture, Master of Science in Architecture, or PhD in Architecture program is required to submit a digital portfolio. Paper portfolios will NOT be accepted, and if submitted, will not be returned. The portfolio is a synopsis of one's creative work. As a visual essay, it tells a story of a person's interests, skills, and development over time. It should include projects that best express one's visual, spatial, and constructional abilities. These projects might include drawings, paintings, sculpture, or photography; graphic, industrial, or interior design; architectural, landscape, or urban design. The faculty who evaluate the portfolios look less for competence in architectural or landscape architectural design and more for a coherent demonstration of visual and spatial abilities expressed through a basic understanding of material and construction. Applicants to the MEBD and MSD should include at least five fully developed projects done solely by the person submitting the portfolio; other group work can be added.

The digital portfolio should be formatted as one PDF document no larger than 10 MB, with no more than 20 pages (maximum page size 10 x 12") or 10 pages (maximum 10 x 24") if you use spreads. Cover pages or table of contents do not count towards total pages. We suggest that you keep the format consistent. For instance, if you are using spreads, use all spreads. If you are using pages, don't mix in spreads. Once your application is submitted, you will not be able to make changes to your portfolio or upload a new one.

City Planning and Urban Design Portfolios

Applicants to the Certificate in Urban Design program should submit portfolios containing reproductions of their work in the visual arts and design. Applicants to the Master of City Planning program with a concentration in Urban Design are strongly encouraged to submit a portfolio. Applicants with professional experience who wish to include examples of their professional work may do so, but are advised to limit these to projects in which they had principal design roles. If examples of collaborative projects are submitted, the applicant's contribution should be specifically described. The digital portfolio should be formatted as one PDF document no larger than 10 MB, with no more than 20 pages (maximum page size 10 x 12") or 10 pages (maximum 10 x 24") if you use spreads. Cover pages or table of contents do not count towards total pages. We suggest that you keep the format consistent. For instance, if you are using spreads, use all spreads. If you are using pages, don't mix in spreads. Once your application is submitted, you will not be able to make changes to your portfolio or upload a new one.

Fine Arts Portfolios

A portfolio is required of all applicants to Fine Arts, Time-Based and Interactive Media, and Emerging Design and Research programs. The portfolio should indicate your major interest, represent your best work, and demonstrate your abilities. At least half of the portfolio should consist of work completed in the last two years. Applicants may choose to provide still images and/or video. All work in the portfolio, including images and concepts, must be original material created by you, and should be identified as academic, professional, or personal. If professional or team projects are included in the portfolio, you must clearly identify your specific role and responsibility in the production of the project. Labels and writing should clearly explain the work.

Still Images

NOTE: The following instructions are guidelines. You may have to take additional steps to reduce the size of your portfolio if it is larger than 10 MB before you can upload it into your application.

For still images, a total of up to twenty (20) images should be submitted. You will need to combine your images into a single PDF to upload. The portfolio should contain a total of twenty (20) RGB JPEGs. The review panel reviews slides at 1920 x 1080 pixels. If your images are larger than this, please follow these directions:

Resize in Photoshop, Image->Image size

First set the Resolution to 72 Pixels/Inch

Set the Width so it is less than 1920 and the height so it is less than 1080

Save a copy of each image as jpeg at 90% quality (or 11/12 quality) for your submission

Each file should be just around 1 mb

To create your pdf, in Photoshop, go to File->Automate->PDF Presentation

Add your files

Check Presentation

Make Background Black or White

Don't include any text options

Leave "Advance Every" unchecked

No transitions

Click OK

Use the "Press Quality" Preset in the next PDF dialog box.

Video Submissions

We will accept up to 5 video links. Each video can be up to 10 minutes long. It is acceptable to provide excerpts if videos are longer than 10 minutes. Submit all video work by providing up to five links to your Image List PDF. Copy and paste the link to your video along with the title, date, running time and intended format of presentation. Video hosting sites include (but are not limited to) YouTube and Vimeo.

Image List for Fine Arts Portfolio Submissions

To describe your work, please include a list as follows: upload an additional PDF document titled "Image Lis" describing the images uploaded and link URLs. The list should be headed with your name and list the image number, title, date, medium, and dimensions of each work. For video submissions, copy and paste the link to your video, also including the running time, intended format of presentation (for example video installation, online video, cinema screening, or not specified) for each video.

6. Test Scores

Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores are required of all but MFA applicants regardless of whether they are from the U.S. or abroad. To register for the GRE, go to Educational Testing Service at www.gre.org. Official test scores must be sent by ETS to the School of Design. The correct institution code to use when requesting scores is 2926; you do not need a departmental code.. We suggest a minimum of 160 Verbal, 148 Quantitative, and 4.5 for Analytical Writing. Keep in mind that these are not cut-off scores.

International applicants whose native language is not English and whose undergraduate training of at least 4 years has not been conducted in the English language must submit satisfactory certification of adequate English proficiency sufficient to pursue graduate study, both comprehension and expression in the spoken and written word. Applicants must submit scores of either the International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic), Pearson's PTE Academic, or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). We suggest a minimum score of 100 on the TOEFL, 68 for the PTE Academic, and a band score of 7.5 for the IELTS, but these are not cut-off scores and we will review any complete application we receive. If you have spent a minimum of 4 years in an English-speaking institution (for your Bachelor's, for example), you will not be required to submit a TOEFL, PTE, or IELTS score.

Applicants may register for the IELTS at www.ielts.org, for the TOEFL at www.ets.org/toefl, and for the PTE Academic at pearsonpte.com. The correct institution code to use when requesting official TOEFL scores is 2926; you do not need a departmental code. Candidates admitted to the School of Design may be required to successfully complete an English Language Program prior to matriculation. They will be notified of this condition in their letter of admission.

7.Interviews

Not all programs require or even allow video interviews; however, some of our programs have optional video or other types of interviews. The Master of City Planning, MSD: Advanced Architectural Design, and Master of Landscape Architecture programs all encourage their applicants to submit an on-line interview through the ApplyWeb system. After you submit your application, you will receive an interview invitation. If you don’t receive an invitation after submitting your application to one of these programs, please check your spam mail before contacting us. You will need a webcam and mic to do the interview, which is recorded and reviewed by the Admissions Committee. For best results, we suggest using a computer with hard-wired internet connection, not wifi. While this interview is optional, we do strongly recommend it so that the faculty can get to know you better. If you encounter any technical problems please contact Help@applyweb.com.

专业介绍

An advanced, three semester Master of Science in Design with an emphasis in Environmental Building Design (MSD-EBD) for architects seeking new skills and competitive advantage in the growing field of sustainable design.

With the renewed urgency of environmental issues-from global climate change to resource shortages and "net-zero" design-architects are faced with demands for new kinds of services that require a new kind of professional. LEED accreditation is only a start, helping designers utilize existing technologies, but a wider range of skills is required to achieve real innovation and to meet the needs of clients in this rapidly changing field. New building design, renovation of existing buildings, and environmental analysis at many scales are critical aspects of comprehensive environmental design. The challenge to architects is to operate at scales greater and smaller than that of the building, requiring the understanding of the chemistry of materials as well as consideration of the impact of whole populations of buildings on their local, regional, and global ecosystems.

The MSD in Environmental Building Design is a specialized, post-professional degree developed to train architects in the new skills and knowledge required for environmental design and especially in the design techniques with which those skills must be integrated into the practice of architecture. The one-year course of study includes coursework on building performance simulation, integrated building design, building envelopes and systems, lighting, daylighting, and the theory and practice of environmental design. Coursework is complemented and extended by a Performance Design Workshop and then explored in depth in an intensive Environmental Design Studio in the early summer.

The Department of Architecture at Penn has gathered a remarkable team of experts to teach in the program. The MSD-EBD operates in close coordination with the Center for Environmental Building & Design, drawing on the expertise of faculty engaged in research at the center and providing case studies and research projects for students in the MSD-EBD.
