World Engineers Symposium – A changing landscape in 2020
From Australia’s bushfire crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic, the engineering profession has worked through a number of challenges since Melbourne hosted the World Engineers Convention (WEC) last November. Now, selected experts are back to discuss how the engineering landscape has altered, and what the future might have in store.
Aptly themed ‘A changing landscape in 2020’, the Engineers Australia presented World Engineers Symposium, held from 18 to 20 November, will see WEC 2019 speakers return to share their knowledge and new experiences gained over the past 12 months.
There will be six plenary sessions across the event, with experts discussing everything from climate smart engineering to the future of the office. It’s a forward-thinking line-up packed with great engineering minds from Australia and overseas, who will explore several big ideas.
This includes Professor Carlo Ratti, Director of the Senseable City Lab at MIT and Founding Partner of Carlo Ratti Associati. He’ll be back to discuss the evolution of the traditional workspace, offering a glimpse into new ways of working in the office of the future. Make sure you
