Tradeline College & University Science & Engineering Facilities Fall Conference

Big changes are underway in science and engineering facilities planning for: The convergence of science and engineering disciplines and space A culture of collaboration, openness, and interaction Project- and problem-based education Shared physical and financial resources Maker space and innovation hubs Radically changed lab/lab-support ratios Widespread flexibility and adaptability Attend this conference to see and learn the new metrics, features, rationales, costs, and outcomes for the latest outstanding new-era building and space planning initiatives involving: Renovation, reuse, and repurposing of outdated facilities Decisions on renovation vs. building new Mixed engineering and science program space Active learning and flipped classrooms Maker space: Design, prototyping, and display space New classroom configurations, capacity analysis, flexibility features, and furniture Effective social and informal learning space “Startup and innovation” space for student entrepreneurship Increased support space and less assigned space Shared core scientific equipment space High-growth robotics, bioengineering, and computational space Student-faculty interaction and undergraduate research space High-bay, open engineering labs Open offices and workspace for researchers, faculty, and students Make this a key planning event to get your project stakeholders (capital project people, facility planners, facility engineers, consulting architects and engineers, science and engineering program chairs, deans, and 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. PLUS!
