Case Study

Situation: 

The KU School of Engineering is a bridge to the future, pioneering new technologies and developing solutions to the problems facing the world. A new building was needed to enhance the student experience. The goal was to provide a setting for students to apply what they learn, push the boundaries, hone their teamwork and communication skills, and build their technical expertise.

Solution:

SKC Communications provided design/build services for scale-up type classrooms for the new KU School of Engineering. The entire system is on the KU Network and custom teach workstations were provided throughout the building. SKC implemented a Crestron-based system with Fushion device monitoring and scheduling. Project planning lasted 1. years prior to the installation start.

Results:

SKC Communications created active learning environments throughout KU’s new engineering building including: one 160-seat room, one 120-seat room, one 90-seat room, and three 60-seat rooms. These new rooms promote student interaction and communication skills while enabling innovative and varied learning and teaching styles.

Technologies Used:

Crestron, Polycom, Biamp, Panasonic, Sharp, Chief, Da-Lite, Shure, Extron, JBL, Elmo, Wacom
