Designing Collaborative Education
In today’s A/E/C industry, collaboration between designers, builders, engineers and constructors has become increasingly more important. Buildings are more complex. Clients demand better performance. Climate change is placing demands on how we build for the future in a sustainable way. Costs, efficiency, liability issues and more – all are are impacting the outcomes of design and construction. Strategic collaboration, while not a new concept, is shifting the way that A/E/C professionals work together to build a better world.
Mississippi State University’s (MSU) School of Architecture and Building Construction Science program recognized the changing trends in delivery methods as well as the importance of teaching their students how to be industry leaders.
Recently, DesignIntelligence talked with Mississippi State University’s Hans Herrmann and Michele Herrmann about the College of Architecture, Art and Design’s cross-disciplinary program for architecture/design/construction management students and how they went about resourcing faculty to be more effective in teaching IPD content.
