A Forum for Design Students, Faculty & Professionals
ByDESIGN is a publication providing students, alumni, friends of CASA, and the College of Environmental Design, University of California at Berkeley (CED) on current developments at CED and within the design professions. Published by CASAalumni in collaboration with CED CASA students and CED, ByDESIGN’s objectives are to address a number of activities:

For CASA / CED Students, ByDESIGN supplements the ongoing efforts of CASAalumni in a number of key areas:

  • Provide infrastructure to recruit, retain, and employ CED students from low income communities interested in the design professions;
  • Highlight exceptional creative and academic achievements by students, professionals and educational scholars;
  • Provide alumni mentoring and guidance in assisting students in succeeding at CED;
  • Provide professional development and counseling including portfolio / resume development, job prospecting and effective interviewing techniques.
  • Assist undergraduate students with university applications and procedures for those seeking to enter graduate schools to further study the design professions.

For the College of Environmental Design, ByDESIGN is an independent publication supporting the College of Environmental Design in its demonstration and ongoing commitment in building diversity within the undergraduate and graduate student programs. ByDESIGN provides a bridge to promote collaborative efforts between the College, CASA students, and CASAalumni to further advance the commitment of diversity within the design professions.

For CED Alumni, and non-CED design graduates from other universities, ByDESIGN provides a platform to publish professional accomplishments and highlight contributions by architectural and planning firms, educational scholars and viewpoints within the various design professions.
