James Andrus

Winners of the 2021 AEI International Student Design Competition (ISDC) were announced on April 9, 2021, during a Virtual Awards Ceremony. Schemmer's James Andrus participated on the University of Nebraska team.

The AEI Student Design Competition was established in 2010 as an annual event, specifically for the architectural engineering programs to highlight and showcase the value of

  • collaboration,
  • competition, and
  • peer review,

all of which are important in the development of designs in the professional world.

Each team was given architectural plans and a Revit model for a building, the Georgetown Day School's Lower/Middle School in Washington, D.C. The teams then design the building systems (mechanical, structural, and electrical) along with meeting design challenges. Teams are able to change the architecture of the building as desired.
