Tailored Experiences: Recommended Sessions for Your Interest
With so many choices at AU, finding the right learning sessions, networking events, and big talks can be challenging. To help you get more out of your attendance, this year AU has created Tailored Experiences. According to the folks at AU:
“A Tailored Experience is a select set of AU sessions that focus on a topic, technology, role, or industry… You don’t have to sign up for all the sessions in a Tailored Experience—or any of them. At the end of the day, AU is an a la carte experience, and you decide what to add to your schedule. But these curated recommendations can be a good place to start building your ideal AU experience.”
There are more than 25 experiences including:
- BIM for Transportation
- Tackling Large-Scale Civil Engineering Projects
- Accelerate Preconstruction with AEC Design Tools
- Additive Manufacturing Across Industries
