Digital Events Series
Engineers Australia’s Digital Events Series has been created to develop engineers’ knowledge of the digital transformation taking place throughout industry.
At the series launch in December 2018, Shaun Gregory, Executive Vice President Exploration and Chief Technology Officer at Woodside Energy outlined some of the changes that industry is likely see in the future digital world and the need for engineers to keep up their knowledge and skills in order to adapt and thrive. The series has been designed in response to this need for continued learning as well as provide an opportunity for engineers to share ideas and experiences. The series is free to Engineers Australia members. Non-members are welcome to attend at the $30 ticket price.
The topics for the year have been drawn from across the many different sectors and fields of practice of engineering to cover a broad range of content.
