The Big Idea

Higher education institutions are becoming more familiar with smart connected campus concepts such as building automation, secure enterprise communications, sustainable energy and other major technology trends impacting campuses today.

Given the large number of buildings and the growing communication needs of a student body, it’s virtually impossible to avoid the topic.

Campuses are now embracing smart digital technologies to better compete with other institutions and deliver improved student experiences.

By leveraging sensors, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and education applications, colleges can create a smart campus that deliver benefits including better campus safety, higher student engagement, increased collaboration and better space utilization.

Will smart campuses live up to this hype? How can higher education institutions leverage this opportunity? What are the challenges that need to be overcome?

The Smart Campus Summit will bring together senior management, digital, IT and facility management leaders from higher education to discuss best practice smart campus strategies.

The Summit mixes high-level keynotes, cross industry case studies from local and global leaders and interactive roundtables moderated by experts.
