An interdisciplinary team of Purdue Polytechnic researchers received National Science Foundation (NSF) funding to study how teams of humans and robots will work together at construction sites. The team hopes the NSF grant will serve as the foundation for years of collaborative research to improve the efficiency and scalability of human-robot teams in constrained and complex construction workplaces.
Purdue Polytechnic instructors in the School of Construction Management Technology found innovative ways to teach the business of construction management to Purdue students during the pandemic. Their creative tactics included video classes, virtual presentations and cross-departmental collaborations, which earned them Purdue’s award for Exceptional Teaching and Instructional Support.
Inspectors check for compliance with building codes during construction projects. Purdue Polytechnic’s Jiansong “Jason” Zhang is researching how to automate code compliance-checking and modular construction by using building information modeling (BIM).
A research team led by Purdue Polytechnic’s Jiansong Zhang created a new method to help experts in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry simplify development of the building information modeling (BIM) software they use.
Ran Ren, a graduate teaching assistant in Purdue Polytechnic’s School of Construction Management Technology, is researching ways to improve building information modeling (BIM) in the field of structural analysis.
The home building market is ripe for an innovation revolution, and CG Visions in Lafayette, Indiana, is poised to take advantage of it. The four partners of CG Visions all graduated from the computer graphics technology program in Purdue's College of Technology.
The mission of the Purdue student chapter of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is to explore the vast opportunities that exist in the electrical construction industry via its interaction with construction professionals worldwide.
NECA participates in three competitions throughout the year:
