A transformation is underway in university facility and space planning models for the sciences, engineering, and advanced technologies. The drivers are ubiquitous program convergence, experiential learning platforms, the boom in maker culture and entrepreneurism, and market demand for highly-skilled, work-ready graduates in newly emerging, heavily funded high-tech research and development fields. Attend this conference to make sure your institution is keeping pace with the new facility initiatives leading institutions are implementing to attract and retain top-level students and faculty, drive discovery, and stay competitive.
Make this a key planning event to get your project stakeholders (capital project people, facility planners, facility engineers, consulting architects and engineers, science, engineering, and technology program chairs, deans, faculty members, research program leaders, financial officers, and operations managers) on the same planning page with respect to the details, numbers, processes, and expectations. Consulting architects and engineers must register with their clients.
