Alicia Fernandez

Bachelor of Architecture

These five years at NJIT, full of grueling but rewarding studio projects, fulfilling meaningful relationships with professors, and developing my own sense of self-perseverance, have paved the way for my emerging career in architecture. NJIT has given me the opportunities needed to facilitate my growth as a student; through scholarships, the Super Jury’s and Design Showcases, I have been challenged and pushed to succeed. I studied abroad my fourth year in Innsbruck, Austria, exploring foods and cultures while learning European concepts of architecture, that allowed me to grasp new perspectives of theory and execution to incorporate into my own work. My studio mates were there for the ups and downs of my five year journey, so I would like to thank them as well as my professors and the administration for providing me with the support I needed in becoming the architectural designer I am today.
