*ITECH SESSION: The Integrative Technologies & Architectural Design Research M.Sc. Program (ITECH) is an interdisciplinary, research-oriented, experiment-based program shaped around contemporary aspects of the built environment and practice. The goal of the ITECH program is to prepare a new generation of students from different disciplines for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in development of the built environment through merging the fields of architecture, engineering, construction, computer science and natural sciences. In celebration of the program’s 10th anniversary, ITECH students and alumni will present highlights featuring the impact the program has had over the past years.
