Silicon Valley and Beyond
Some of the worlds most creative and innovative design work is done in the Silicon
Valley and the greater Bay Area. We have many alumni who work throughout the region.
However, opportunities for internships outside of the Bay Area are numerous and offer
some unique experiences. The lists below specify which have a UOA on file, and which
don’t, along with which are in the Bay Area and which are outside of it. In all cases, if a
student gets an internship at any of these sites, they are pre-approved by your Major
Advisor. If they don’t have a UOA on file, the student needs to get that signed. Without
the UOA on file, the student can’t enroll in DSGN 127.
