Welcome to the Institute for Design and Construction! We are one of six centers and institutes under the College for Design and Social Inquiry at Florida Atlantic University. We are housed within the School of Architecture and located on the downtown Fort Lauderdale campus.

In 2008 we changed our name from the Florida Institute for Safety and Construction (FISC) to the Institute for Design and Construction (IDaC). This name change was made in an effort to incorporate the allied design and construction trades. You can read more about the history of the Institute and the name change in the About Us section.

IDaC is committed to offering educational and training opportunities to students and professionals throughout the building industry. The areas include safety science, construction technology, construction management, and design.

For your convenience, we offer a comprehensive listing of online courses, including but not limited to: Construction Management, Leadership, CPTED, and Contractor Exam Preparation. We also offer preparation courses for the Architect Registration Exam (ARE). We are steadfast in our mission to serve the thriving design and construction industries in our community by expanding our course list and certificate programs.

Please review our website and class list, and contact me for more information. I look forward to discussing how FAU's IDaC can take your career to the next level!
