CONJECT help MSc Construction Management students at University of Reading

Matt-at-Reading-Universityreading university logoThis morning my colleague Matt Carr presented an overview of Construction Collaboration Technologies to the students studying for their MSc in Construction Management at the University of Reading.

One of the course objectives is to understand the role of communication and information technologies within construction and we were pleased to detail how the features and functionality of our software has helped to bring together project teams to deliver thousands of projects in the architectural, engineering and construction sector (AEC).

This activity continues our proud association and tradition of supporting UK Universities that provide courses relating to AEC activities. Before the re-brand of BIW Technologies to CONJECT last year my ex-BIW colleague Paul Wilkinson was instrumental (and still is, as an independent  AEC Technology consultant) in providing lectures and presentations to UK Universities including: Loughborough, Greenwich, Nottingham Trent & Manchester Business School. In addition to this we’ve supported collaborative research studies and projects for Universities in the Far-East and have provided our systems to support student design competitions for the likes of Fosters & Partners.

Going forward, we have a number of on-going initiatives and discussions with universities from the UK and overseas learning institutions regarding lectures and presentations to help educate the next generation of AEC professionals. Please drop me a line if you’d like to find out more or if you would be interested in working with CONJECT?
