TLTC will provide $50,000 for Kamat’s pilot project, which will “develop new forms of pedagogy based on the integration of new visualization techniques that will provide timely and effective education and, at the same time, enhance collaboration among students and between students and instructors,” according to the proposal.

In collaboration with faculty colleagues at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning (TCAUP),this project was proposed in response to data that shows “many construction and civil engineering students have historically lacked a comprehensive knowledge of onsite construction tasks, and the dynamics and complexities involved in a typical construction project.”
