Project Profile: Temple University, Pennsylvania
Project: Educational Technologies for Classroom & Laboratory Building
Scope of Work: Professional Systems Engineering, LLC provided educational technologies programmatic, schematic, and design drawings for this multi-media project. PSE provided multi-media teaching consulting for programmatic and design stages. Included were network and educational technology systems designed for transparent use of computers in all classrooms and auditoriums.
The use of the computer is transparent in the sense that computers are located in a central Media Center and not in each classroom or in the auditoriums. The Central Media Center also included complete controllable and scaleable input for multiple video, audio, network, and internet sources. Six computer labs plus capabilities for computers in every classroom and at every student station were provided within the project.
This $25 million classroom expansion included advanced infrastructure serving data, telecom, voice, music, and video media transmission. Our hybrid solution served special music instruction, computer labs, math labs, media centers, and extensive remote electronic library access.
Also included were acoustics, noise and vibration control, architectural acoustical finish programming, audio/visual/video systems, sound reinforcement systems, and distributed electronic bulletin board systems. The Perelman classroom building, as it is now called, reflects quite permanence whose planning and design compliments the vigorous training today’s student needs.
