Our Tradition of Learn by Making

This year we reflect on the many ways our longstanding tradition of hands-on practice continues to foster a unique learn by making culture that is the signature of a CAED education. 

Hiking into Poly Canyon, students gather inspiration from the eclectic collection of notable construction experiments. In studio, they are busy at work on the design of a "brain" for the 2015 Solar Decathlon House. Architecture faculty and students work together to create a living lab on campus to test sustainable technology, while City and Regional Planning's Urban Design Studio creates an award-winning community proposal for a Bay Area city. Construction Management students converged in Reno, Nev., to win competitons that simulate the real-life bidding process, Landscape Architecture students traveled to South Africa to build a playground at an orphanage, and Architectural Engineering students placed in a tall building seismic design competition in Alaska. 

CAED students are making a difference, everywhere they go!

CAED students are making a difference, everywhere they go!

Faculty and staff are recognized with the President's Community Service Award, accolades from the American Society of Civil Engineers, and honors for a quarter century of foster parenting 90 children and young adults. 

Our alumni are making their marks, as well. Recent graduates are creating safe playgrounds, innovating fire safety products, and winning awards and recognition for their efforts. Others give their time and treasure to support the aspirations of the CAED, offering gifts that will impact students and instructional practices for years to come.
