||Information technology teaching at the University: an experience atthe Faculty of Architecture in Naples
||The experiences illustrated here refer to didactic activity carried out at the Faculty ofArchitecture of the University of Naples; in particular these concentrate on thetechnological aspects of the teaching of architecture. We can consider the evolutionof the architect from individual operator to manager of the multi-disciplinaryaspects of the building process (building process manager) as a reality in today'sItaly. The Support Systems of Information Technology (ITSS), can be of greatimportance €or this professional figure, and for this reason it is important to includehim/her in the teaching process.I personally have involved fourth and fifth year and last-year undergraduatestudents in the following subjects at the experimental stage:degradation diagnosis supported by m Expert System in courses of the Technology ofBuilding Rehabilitation;co-ordinated System of tests in degradation of existing buildings;the use of three-dimensional programmes to survey and visualize rhe territory;rapid analysis of degradation in the maintenance of urban facades. *In these and other similar works I'TSS has played a significant part for a globalsynthesis in students' methodological approaches, being an inttoduc tion to newInformation Technology potentialities.
