College of Environmental Design

Current Students

Welcome! Here you'll learn about the College of Environmental Design's advising services, prizes and awards, and career services.


CED offers a robust suite of advising services for both graduate and undergraduate students. Our undergraduate advisors meet directly with students, provide extensive web resources that streamline the advising process, link students to campus-wide opportunities, and support our lively student organizations and their activities. At the graduate level, faculty members provide students with academic advice and professional counsel, while staff advisers in each department and program offer students in-depth advising on program requirements, financial support and campus resources.

We also think it is important to recognize the innovative and creative work of CED students. So we offer a prizes and awards program, allowing students to compete for dozens of prizes, scholarships and fellowships, while departments and programs make scholarship and fellowship awards to both graduate and undergraduate students. Such prizes and awards are important in terms of helping to finance a CED education, as well as distinguishing students as they move toward a career or graduate/professional studies.

Our newest service is the CED Career Services Center. The center offers professional career counseling and employment resources both on-site in Wurster Hall, as well as at the UC Berkeley Career Center. In addition, the center hosts regular workshops for both graduate and undergraduate students, and links students with Bay Area professionals.  So if you want a leg up on your future career, come by the Career Services Center!
