Biomedical Engineering is an integral part of modern health care. Biomedical Engineering teams bring their skills to a broad range of fields ranging from Clinical Engineering managing all aspects of the health technology lifecycle; Rehabilitation Engineering taking lead roles as front line clinicians in assessment, design and manufacture of assistive technology for people with disabilities; engineers and technicians in industry developing and manufacturing medical devices; and leading or supporting standards development, review and implementation across the health care sector; through to researchers working closely with other clinicians or industry partners to develop new technologies and procedures.

When: 17-19 July 2017
Where: Sydney, Australia

Project Controls Conference

Project owners, contractors and the wider community all benefit when capital projects are delivered on time, within budget, safely, and with the required quality. Across Australia, especially in NSW, the engineering profession is in the middle of an explosion in infrastructure spending with a circa $70 billion spend planned over the next 5 to 10 years. With this surge in investment, alongside significant opportunity, comes the well-known risk of cost and time overruns. Project Controls is a central part of the solution here, encompassing as it does, all the competencies for control of cost and time, including estimating, budgeting, planning, scheduling, trend analysis, risk management, change control, forecasting and, most of all, effective and transparent communication. This conference will provide you with insights from case study examples, workshops, and training opportunities, together with access to software and consulting providers who will present their developments, and opportunities for you to network and promote ideas to enhance Project Controls within your region.

When: 20 – 22 September 2017
Where: Sydney, Australia
