In a year when strength and resilience have been tested to the extreme, the imperative for engineers and business to work together to design a sustainable future has never been more important.
Engineers have the mindset to solve problems using creativity, innovation and practical knowledge that goes way beyond the general.
When engineers are given the opportunity to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges the results are outstanding, and yet too often they are excluded from the vital conversations where decisions are made. What happens when engineers can explore, test and develop solutions instead of mitigating the impacts of aggressive trade-offs?
In this thought-provoking webinar, Dr Helen Meese, a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, and Angela Hobbs, MSc in Sustainable Business, will share examples of engineering achievements and the stories behind the partnerships and collaborations that are creating sustainable impacts on a global scale. Their experience of working together is an excellent example of the positive impact of collaboration and different thinking styles and what happens when business and engineering collide.
What can we learn from engineering innovators & disruptors? How do we reinforce the opportunity for today's engineers to be included at the right time? How do we encourage tomorrow's solution finders and problem solvers to become the engineers of the future?
Join the conversation in this live webinar on 10 November, which will include an introduction to the Institution’s new Implementing sustainable engineering course launching in February 2021.
