Meet Your Instructor

In this new series, we profile our professional instructors, who talk about why they're excited to teach you and what they bring to the classroom. Look for a new instructor every few weeks.

Stephen Wong, AutoCAD

An instructor with Extension since 2001, Stephen Wong keeps coming back to teach each term because of the amazing energy our students bring to the classroom. “My students demand excellence, he says. “They come to the Interior Design and Interior Architecture certificate for two reasons: to earn a certificate and to find their career in design. With such lofty goals, my students are passionate about learning and ask insightful questions about the coursework and the profession.

“Every student in each of my classes learns the practical aspects of the design profession, from interviewing secrets to actual construction scenarios,” he continues. “They leave ready to join the profession.”

Stephen Wong, M.Arch., is an architect and staff project manager with Kaiser Permanente, overseeing the planning, design and construction of a variety of capital projects. With almost 30 years of experience, he has worked on all phases of building projects, specializing in project management, construction documentation and contract administration. Wong has taught and lectured throughout the West Coast and Asia, including the Academy of Art Masters Program and AutoDesk.
