Monday 27 February 2023, 9am - 5:30pm, The Slate, University of Warwick
About the event
The one-day conference aimed to provide a platform for an in-depth exploration of innovative solutions and strategies that enable the building of a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient future. The University of Warwick's School of Engineering, in collaboration with the Sustainable Cities Global Research Priorities programme, invited academics and industry leaders to participate in the conference on "Engineering and Science for Deeply Uncertain Times."
During the conference, the significance of modern, innovative pedagogical approaches in the delivery of engineering education globally was addressed. The focus was on identifying and overcoming inherent barriers in quality, knowledge organisation, content, and hierarchy to support the advancement of emerging skills and capacity-building required to equip engineers of the future.
Distinguished Panelists Included
Head of Engineering at Engineers Without Borders UK
Angela Wilks, Power System Engineer, National Grid ESO
Rana Ilgaz, Head of Profession Highways and Traffic, Transport for London
