New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is hosting a colloquium to discuss how an invention moves from a mere idea to a commercial product. The colloquium, sponsored by the Albert Dorman Honors College at NJIT, will explore this topic with two esteemed panelists. >>
For three days, architecture students at NJIT will abandon their studios to work with skilled masons who will turn their abstract designs into something more concrete: namely, brick walls. During the Masonry Design Build Competition, the students, all of whom attend the New Jersey School of Architecture, will spend April 2-3 working with the masons, and a third day on April 4, displaying their building projects and giving presentations to judges. “Masonry Day is a great example of hands-on higher education,” said Urs Gauchat, dean of the New Jersey School of Architecture. “It helps college students develop a respect for the craftsman's skills and teaches them that their designs and their plans are not an end in themselves.” >>
