Design students at University of Melbourne are researching ways to integrate data-based decision making into urban design and planning projects, thanks to a three-week full-time internship program launched in partnership with SMEC.
With SMEC’s focus on exploring ways to integrate Smart City philosophy and technology into our projects and practices, the program provides an opportunity for students to work collaboratively on an innovative joint research project based around City, Data and Design.
Students are investigating issues such as carpark and bicycle parking usage in Melbourne CBD, and exploring the broader fields that make up the complex system of a city such as transportation, environment, water, psychology, human interaction, Information Technology, ecology, and agriculture.
SMEC has been engaged by Green Light Contractors (GLC), the Australian EPC arm of Elecnor, to deliver technical support, concept and detailed engineering design works on Stage 1 of the New England Solar Farm in New South Wales.Read More
