Manu Venugopal finished his Ph.D. from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He also has a Masters in Computational Science and Engineering from the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. His doctoral research titled Formal Specification of Industry Foundation Class Concepts using Engineering Ontologies”, introduced a new software engineering methodology aimed at improving the model exchange semantics and was funded by a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) grant.
At Georgia Tech, Manu is involved in a variety of engineering projects involving Building Information Modeling (BIM) at the Digital Building Lab headed by Professor Chuck Eastman and emerging technologies for the construction industry at the RAPIDS Laboratory headed by Jochen Teizer. More recently, he has been involved with the development of a Precast National BIM Standard in association with the Precast- Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) and the Charles Pankow Foundation.
He recently published a research paper on Semantics of Model Views for Information Exchanges using the Industry Foundation Class schema.
