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 keep 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, design architects, consulting engineers, science and engineering program chairs, deans, faculty members, 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.
Who should attend?
Conference registration is open to those employed at universities, colleges, and junior colleges, and their project teams including project managers, facility planners, lab planners, space planners, architects, facility engineers, operations managers, academic science, technology, and engineering deans, faculty, and research program administrators. Conference registration is limited for those not employed at colleges and universities.
