This course examines the science of how noise is impacting people as well as what can be done about it. Upon completion of this course, students will have a better understanding of the impact of noise in the workplace, how sound is measured and how rooms are evaluated, how the science of acoustics helps a designer create the most pleasing space possible.

Is your cafe just a place to eat? Creating effective and rewarding multipurpose space (IDCEC)

The cafeteria has become a very important part of the contemporary office, campus, and acute care facility. There are two concerns that should be top of mind, the business side of the design, as well as the social impact of the design Effective use of space is a primary driver of foodservice revenue. Even if the cafeteria is not directly selling food, the ability to provide a seat for each person during peak periods is an important aspect of a successful space. The scope of this CEU is focused on the dining room area and does not attempt to cover the food line layout, back of the house, or traffic patterns associated with entrance and exit of the food area.

There are many options in front of design professionals and no shortage of resources for creating this space. However, different facilities will require different designs and the use of zones will help meet diverse requirements, leading to more satisfied users.
