Combining backgrounds in structural engineering, wood science and digital design, Mr. Schreyer’s interests span the entire range of planning and design of buildings and structures. He specializes in the design and construction of mainly heavy-timber type (e.g. glulam) structural systems. This is complemented by a strong interest in computer applications and web-based solutions in structural engineering, construction and architecture.

Mr. Schreyer is a Lecturer in the Building and Construction Technology (BCT) program at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) in Amherst, MA. He teaches classes in CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and BIM (Building Information Modeling), building materials and construction methods, wood properties as well as a capstone graduate structural design class in Architecture.

In his research, Mr. Schreyer focuses on the behavior of wood-based structural systems with a particular interest in innovative connection systems for wooden structures. Other foci are development of software applications for CAD design and structural optimization.
