Faculty Director – Emerging Technologies 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.
