The Innovation in Built Environment Education Conference 2017, themed around “Learning Matters”, will be held at Birmingham City University’s City Centre Campus, 7-8 September 2017.

The emphasis this year will be on building up a community of Built Environment Education Practitioners. While we will include a range of keynote speakers and formal presentations, in response to feedback, we will allow more time for workshops and constructive conversations to facilitate exchange of views and deepening understanding of the issues that face those delivering education.

Future Tech: Changing Construction Practices

The Future is Today… New technologies are getting introduced almost every day, and many industry leaders are advocating that we need to apply these emerging technologies to our construction management processes more aggressively, in order to increase the productivity in construction.

What technologies can we use now to improve productivity in the construction industry? As construction educators, how do we teach our students to be leaders of the industry in terms of applying these emerging technologies for productivity improvement?

The Department of Construction Science at Texas A&M University is proud to host the Annual ASC International Conference from April 22nd through 25th in 2015, where you will find an opportunity to discuss these issues with your colleagues from other schools. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to learn about a number of emerging technologies that our keynote speakers and technology providers will bring to the conference. Additionally, the conference will host a number of “workshop sessions” on various topics of interest, on Wednesday, prior to the main event on Thursday.
