University Science and Engineering Facilities 2023

Attend this conference to benchmark your plans for renovations, expansions, and new construction for higher education research and education facilities. 

New construction, renovation, and space planning initiatives are delivering new space types, program colocations, and layouts, and very different physical infrastructure platforms needed for:

  1. Program convergence of the sciences, engineering, and advanced technologies
  2. Flexibility and adaptability for shared use and multiple modalities
  3. Increasingly blurred lines between physical, digital, and biological science and engineering
  4. Applied engineering and sciences
  5. Hybrdd-, experiential-, and project-based learning
  6. Growth in computational and data-science-driven programs
  7. Expanded emphasis on maker culture and entrepreneurship programs  
  8. Meeting market demand for skilled graduates in high-technology fields

You’ll get details on facility components that support new and expanded research programs, enable active and hybrid learning, improve recruitment of researchers, students, and faculty, make more efficient use of resources (space, budgets, and core technology), increase flexibility, integrate science and engineering disciplines, boost collaboration and interaction, and reduce capital and operating costs.

PLUS! This special pre-conference course on October 1st:
The Fundamentals of Planning and Design of University Science and Engineering Facilities

Make this a key planning event to get your project stakeholders (capital project people, facility planners, facility engineers, design architects, consulting engineers, science and engineering deans, program chairs and faculty, financial officers, and operations managers) on the same planning page with respect to the details, numbers, processes, and expectations. 

More details will be available shortly.

If you would like to participate as an exhibitor or sponsor, or would like updates please email or call (925) 254-1744 x 119.

Who should attend?

Conference registration is open to those employed at universities, colleges, and junior colleges, and their project teams including project managers, facility planners, lab planners, space planners, architects, facility engineers, operations managers, academic science, technology, and engineering deans, faculty, and research program administrators. Conference registration is limited for those not employed at colleges and universities. Product vendors must be sponsors or exhibitors to attend. The conference sessions are primarily aimed at equipping facility owners/end-users to make optimal project team, facility design, programming, and construction decisions.
