Our industry partners tap into the talents of the college and further the impact of our combined efforts.

The College of Architecture, Arts, and Design boasts a roster of distinguished faculty, cultivates next-gen leaders, and aims to make positive and lasting contributions to the future of our shared natural and built environments. Industry partners can benefit from our talent network while also championing initiatives of our shared institutions.


Combining efforts to revolutionize an industry

Our researchers wondered: how can construction progress monitoring be improved by autonomous robotic technology? Thanks to Procon Consulting, a Boston Dynamics mobile robot is now being studied at construction sites on campus to answer the question, through a unique collaboration among academics, operations, and private industry.
