This course will demonstrate how engineered quartz surfaces can be used in a variety of commercial settings to achieve superior design quality and functionality. The use of engineered quartz in design projects is rising due to its unique properties, sustainable manufacturing process, and wide range of application uses.


First, students will learn about the differences between engineered quartz and other solid surfaces, examples of commercial applications, and common usage challenges. Then, the design benefits of engineered quartz and its role in sustainable design will be discussed. Finally, this course will examine best practices for incorporating engineered quartz into commercial projects.
