University of Hawaii: Automating the Hawaiian Islands

The University of Hawaii’s Information Technology Center is a new state-of-the-art facility that expands UH IT Services’ capabilities to provide support of IT resources throughout UH’s 10-campus system across six islands from one centralized location. Hawaii’s geography, which includes high mountains and deep ocean channels between islands, has created this unique challenge.

University of Queensland: Living automation for a greener campus

The Global Change Institute Building at The University of Queensland in Australia is designed to meet the highest standards in sustainability. The control system behind the building was meant to mesh seamlessly with the Building Management System, such that users would have control where required of internal and external blinds, louvres, shadescreens, in-slab cooling, building modes and the usual AV and lighting systems, without affecting the overall efficiency of the building.

University of Western Australia: Scalable collaboration space

The “M” block project at the University of Western Australia sought to replace traditional show-and-tell methods of teaching students about cell pathology with practical sessions that would provide and demand a collaborative learning environment to analyze data on real patient blood samples. A 24/7 facility, the project serves as a group study location as well.

University of Ottawa: Secure law education

The Ian G. Scott Courtroom design infrastructure had many requirements, as it serves the Provincial Government as well as the School of Law at the University of Ottawa. Strict provincial guidelines, security protocols and standards set by the bar, as well as end-users of the space shaped the attributes, capabilities and communication processes in the space.

University of Minnesota: A.L.I.V.E. for learning

While revising the curriculum for the Doctorate of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program, the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy sought to make a significant pedagogical change. Rather than traditional “sage on the stage” instruction, the new model was created to promote student-created knowledge, with instructors able to direct, coach and expand on learning.

Classroom Automation: Innovation going mobile

As Shenandoah University, in Virginia, was experiencing a dynamic period of growth led by an expansion of its health sciences program, administrators realized that this expansion necessitated a reconsideration of issues of enterprise technology standardization, integration and support.
