Academic & Teaching

The CTBUH Tall Building Academic and Teaching Committee was established to coordinate and advance teaching and academic initiatives across academic member institutes around the world. The group leads on from the very successful Research, Academic & Postgraduate Working Group, which was active between 2010-2014 and resulted in a number of new research and academic initiatives for the Council. The current Committee provides an international platform to facilitate the sharing of teaching and research practices from tall building and urban programs among CTBUH Academic Institute members. This includes urban, architecture and engineering studios; seminar courses; PhD and Master’s theses; academic accreditation processes to certify the excellence of tall building teaching programs, organization of the international student design and research competitions, and the facilitation of dialogue and collaborations between students and professors across universities around the world.
