O que eu aprenderei?

This doctoral program answers the pressing societal need for professionals with the interdisciplinary expertise necessary to redefine how we develop buildings, infrastructure and communities. The emerging fields of bio-inspiration and bio-integration provide paths towards this objective. A bio-inspired built environment capitalizes on the regulative, adaptive, and integrative characteristics of biological systems and incorporates these features into the constructed world. Likewise, a bio-integrated built environment situates constructed facilities amidst natural systems to achieve symbiosis. In doing so, buildings and infrastructure will more optimally respond to changing conditions and expectations – which will make the interdependent built environment more sustainable, parsimonious, and resilient, as well as ecologically integrated. Graduates will have an immediate impact in university and industrial settings, and they will change the relationship between the built environment and our planet. We do this by bringing together faculty from departments in CAUS, CNRE, COE, COS and CVM to deliver a program that explores the built environment and biological systems synergistically to discover innovative connections between these two fields.

Students in the Bio-inspired Buildings (BioBuild) program earn a degree from one of the participating degree-granting programs.
