Technology in Design

This research seminar explores the use of information technology in the design process and in project delivery. The focus is on the designer and specifically on the use of technology to design, to communicate and collaborate with the in-house design team and with the consultants, to facilitate construction, to specify materials and assemblies, to present to the owner and the public, to assist in bidding, and to keep control during construction. Special emphasis is based on collaboration, on the needs of distributed design teams, and on changes in the traditional processes. The course is based on case studies and directed research that provide the framework for employing information technology in design and construction. The case studies together with assigned readings constitute the basis for class discussions.Prerequisites: Permission of instructor.For more information please visit:
