Faculty Director – Emerging Technologies London program
The ‘Emerging Technologies’ program was founded by Gregory Brooks in 2007, as a study-abroad program for University of Texas engineering and architecture students. The course takes place in London, U.K., every 2 years, during the months of May and June.

While in London, students learn about the latest building design technologies being developed by top engineering and architecture firms. Students live and study at University College London, tour architecture, attend visits to professional offices, and produce technical research mentored by a London professional in the student’s area of specialization.

Founder, Director –
AEWorldMap is an ongoing research project started in 2007.  The goal of the research is to create awareness about current building projects around the world and the team of professionals that created each project.   

Many authors contribute articles (posts) to the site, including current and former students at The University of Texas at Austin, and volunteer student research-assistants.
