Mission Statement

The Building Technology Educators’ Society (BTES) is an organization of architectural educators, passionate about teaching the technology of building design and construction. The mission of the BTES is to promote and publish the best pedagogic practices, relevant research, scholarship, and other creative activity to facilitate student learning, advance innovation, and enhance the status of our disciplines in the profession at large.



As part of our central initiative to promote excellence in teaching, this section of the web site will be devoted to sharing links and teaching resources. A key component of this intiative is the publication of Proceedings from the BTES Conference.

2006 BTES Symposium Proceedings

With the formal incorporation of the BTES, the proceedings for the 2006 BTES, held at the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, have been released as our first official publication (ISBN 978-0-615-24911-7)! We've gone through an independent online printer (Lulu) and have produced an attractively bound book that includes back cover photographs from the symposium. It will be available from online retailers such as for a cover price of $35, but if you buy it through the BTES directly, additional proceeds beyond printing and shipping cost go back to the organization. And if you're a dues-paying member of the BTES, you can have it for $25...such a deal! (Member purchases will be handled by rebate check...there is unfortunately no easy way to get the printer to have an alternate price. Please email and send a copy of your Lulu receipt and we'll mail a $10.00 check out to your registered member address). Click the cover image below to order your copy today.
