What is there role of engineers in our future? Every day we are told our economy is in a state of flux and that jobs and markets are constantly evolving. But what does this mean for engineers? How will engineers be working the benefit our future communities?
It is time for us to meet these challenges head on and look towards the future of the profession, not simply from the national perspective, but through a very parochial South Australian lens.
It is time for us to pull together knowledge and evidence about the future of South Australia to develop a blueprint of what our profession can do for the State, and how the science and practice of engineering will adapt and grow to continue to benefit the South Australian community.
In 2020, Engineers Australia South Australia is pleased to invite you to join us for a series of lunches that will look at the future of our profession in South Australia. These lunches have been targeted to a group of experienced South Australian engineers, to provide an opportunity to contribute to the blueprint of engineering capability for SA. Your voice matters, and we look forward to your deeper involvement in this process.
Each lunch will feature an experienced speaker who will highlight a particular aspect of our economy and the future, along with opportunity to discuss key priorities.
Seats are strictly limited – book early to avoid disappointment.
