As A Student
As a student of interdisciplinary studies, I learned how to analyze problems from many points of view. To attack a problem without being held back by only seeing through the lens of one discipline. This serves me well as construction project management requires me to understand many parts of a project. This includes being able to communicate with electricians, plumbers, block masons, roofers, architects, and engineers. Not only being able to work with each one but being able to get all on the same page and working together.
It’s not only me who feels this way. Many in the industry are starting to understand the importance of interdisciplinarity.
Here is a great video of Stéphanie Walsh Matthews describing interdisciplinary work:
