Group Research Proposal Competition

Computing has the potential to enhance sustainability within the construction industry, and our awareness of this potential impact is an important precondition for improving project outcomes. As a group you will be developing a research proposal to answer the question:


How can digital processes in asset delivery (design and construction) and management (operations) maximize sustainability?


You will be supported by active and experiential learning pedagogy delivered by an international panel of experts who will introduce you to the following topics:

  • Data analysis, simulation, and resilience,
  • Energy modelling and monitoring,
  • Virtual and augmented reality,
  • Blockchain and distributed ledger technology, and
  • Product and process modelling.

By partnering with Autodesk Inc. and Trimble Inc. you will gain hands-on experience through tutorials and workshops in the application of:

  • Generative design,
  • Cloud computing,
  • Virtual reality, and
  • Product and process modelling.

If you have any questions, please contact the Chair and Co-Chair of the Summer School. More information will be provided to the participants after being accepted into the program.
