ACE has had a very important influence on my career decision. This program was recommended to me by my high school counselor, who knew I was interested in architecture and interior design, and thought that this program would be a good tool for me. AttendinaACE has impacted my outlook on the design and construction industry by showing me the design and construction perspective on infrastructures in Philadelphia and introducing me to professionals in the industry.g ACE during my Freshman year at WRT Design and as a Junior at KSS Architects confirmed my interest in architecture. Thanks to this program, I was able to experience the field hands-on and finally decide what my future career would be.
