During the visit, the researcher gave a 40-hour lecture series on “Emerging Technologies in Construction” and presented topics such as “Virtual Reality in Construction”, “Virtual Construction Site”, “Augmented Reality in Construction”, “Robotics in Construction”, “Quality Control of Construction Projects Using Point Clouds and Augmented Reality Technology Applications”, “Accident Prevention System in Construction Projects: Preventing Blind Spots in Construction Sites”, “Using Animation Module in Health and Safety Trainings in Construction to Prevent Accidents”, and more. The lectures also included a number of videos, as well as sharing knowledge, insights, best practices and practical examples with full-time and part-time students from the Construction, Building Engineering Systems and Smart Building Engineering study programmes. All this knowledge and practical examples will later be useful for students preparing practical work and projects in building maintenance, building structures, construction organisation and other subjects.
