Increasing STEM Mobility through Study Abroad in Europe: Engineering, Architecture and Design - Maria Aiolova

426 views

Published on

New questions have arisen in light of today’s demands for innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), increasingly global jobs markets, worldwide competition, and imbalanced opportunities for study abroad. One such question: Should the selection of study abroad location be tied to local resources and assets? Using two STEM-focused study abroad programs in Europe as examples, we’ll discuss this question, and bring together innovators in STEM education to identify major challenges and best practices, and develop new roadmaps for creating successful STEM programs.

  5. 5. STEM vs. STEAM • In most reports architecture programs are not considered STEM and thus not included. • There were just under 10,000 architecture degrees awarded in 2010/2011. • Top majors included: Architecture, general; City/Urban Planning; and Environmental Design/ Architecture. • The majority of the professional architecture program emphasize on engineering and technology. 5
  6. 6. STEM FACULTY SUMMIT AND MAJORS FINDINGS • More academic theme-based programs; • More support for undergraduate research; • Support the higher needs of such majors; • Including such items as robust laboratory space; • More opportunities for international internships that support academic majors; • ‘Big pipe’ IT support; • Better community service options; 6

  13. 13. GLOBAL ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN The Global Architecture and Design Program combines design and science in an instruction delivery model that is able to call upon the latest thinkers and practitioners in architecture, design, and engineering. This innovative, and flexible curriculum can leverage a distributed global footprint of teaching locations to dramatically enhance the student learning experience. 15
  14. 14. GLOBAL ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN Using each city as a laboratory, the program rethinks what is healthy about the city, in both its forms and its life. The investigations are based on one illuminating hypothesis: in the future, cities will grow to be self-sufficient in their critical necessities through massive public works and infrastructural support. 16

  16. 16. Program Details • Core curriculum: Future Cities Design Studio, Future Cities Seminar, and Science, Engineering, and Technology Workshop • Cutting-edge design projects and workshops using the latest technological tools for 3D modeling, environment and performance analysis, computational design, and additive manufacturing. • Innovative teaching methodology and hands-on support from leading designers that allows the students to reach functional or expert skill levels in a short time • Direct experimentation with technology to close the gap that exists between design, individual responsibility, and the current global environmental crisis • Faculty of innovators in the fields of architecture, material science, urban design, landscape architecture, and civil and environmental engineering • Interaction with elite architecture and design firms, institutes, and organizations during studio visits and guest lectures 18
  17. 17. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS Students are required to take three courses: Future Cities Design Studio, Future cities Seminar, Science, Engineering and Technology Workshop. Students can also choose to take an elective course, including a language. Credit 15 semester / 22.5 quarter hours Future Cities Design Studio [6 semester credits] Future cities Seminar [3 semester credits] Science, Engineering and Technology Workshop [3 semester credits] CIEE Elective including Language [3 semester credits] 28
  18. 18. ELIGIBILITY AND SUBJECT AREAS Eligibility Requirements Overall GPA 2.75 Students must be architecture majors or minors and have completed 2-3 semesters of design studio or a project based course in their major. Students from the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Civil and Environmental Engineering Programs and Majors are eligible to apply. 29
  19. 19. FUTURE CITIES DESIGN STUDIO This studio will examine this emergent urban condition by focusing on those sites that are seen to concentrate spatial, economic, social and cultural experiences to positive effect. It is interested in the new kinds of intensity of urban experience that are stimulated by the interactions of local sites and trans-local networks. It will pay particular attention to the catalytic circumstances or specific conditions of possibility that give rise to new, productive and sustainable forms of urban experience. In doing so, the studio will focus on two significant urban conditions: at the neighborhood scale it examines specific building typology in the urban fabric or, at the regional scale, will focus on large infrastructure such as the driver of a particular kind of urbanization in specific sites. Contact hours: 90. Recommended credit: 6 semester/9.0 quarter hours. 30
  20. 20. FUTURE CITIES SEMINAR The main urban case study will be the host city and its surroundings, for it is here that a rich variety of trendsetting projects of sustainable design can be experienced firsthand. These building projects offer exciting solutions for the use of recycled energy, efficient lighting, natural materials, converted infrastructure, and ecological/political coordination, and we will visit several during scheduled field trips. The resulting insights into strategies for creating livable, socially responsible urban environments will be valuable both to students of architecture and those outside the discipline. For indeed, cities have always reflected the combined efforts of human civilization and will continue to require interdisciplinary teamwork to survive and flourish. Contact hours: 45. Recommended credit: 3 semester/4.5 quarter hours. 31
  21. 21. SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOP In a series of hands-on workshops, students learn about tools and technologies with the capacity for profound impact and systemic change, especially in an age of urbanization, rapid technological evolution, and climate crisis. The broad arena is synthesized in the position that future designers will need to create highly reactive and flexible environments. The course focuses on technologies that enable this: computational design, environmental simulation, advanced materiality, and rapid prototyping, and is organized in a survey to accommodate students with diverse interests and experience levels. Contact hours: 45. Recommended credit: 3 semester/4.5 quarter hours. 32
  22. 22. CIEE GLOBAL AD SUMMIT The Global AD Summit brings together students from all three cities for presentations and dialogue around a core global challenge. It features student and faculty presentations as well as presentations by global architecture and design experts. Each year we select one core topic (i.e. Climate Change, Water, or Renewable Energy) and select student and professional speakers for the event. 33
