On Monday 11th of April we had the honor to host the event “MRAC Meetup. Learning from the Alumni Community” in which some of the best Alumni of the Master in Robotics and Advanced Construction at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia had the chance to present their past MRAC projects focused on Human-Machine interaction and Machine learning, and tell theaudience about their academic and professional life after the MRAC experience.
The event was part of the Studio III “Robotic Craft Interactions” led by faculty Alexandre Dubor together with faculty assistants Marielena Papandreou and Vincent Huyghe and was showcased live on the IAAC Facebook channel. Focusing on Human-Machine interaction and Machine learning, the Studio leads toward their 1st year Final project combining the knowledge acquired through a one year of studios, workshops, and seminars and producing a clear proposal for a better AEC industry.
The Master in Robotics and Advanced Construction (MRAC) seeks to train a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals who are capable of facing our growing need for a more sustainable and optimized construction eco-system. Focusing on the emerging design and market opportunities arising from novel robotic and advanced manufacturing systems, the master program investigates how advances in robotics and digital fabrication tools change the way we build and develop processes and design tools for such new production methods.
