Specialist training courses let you learn new skills and add to your personal development.
Earn new qualifications to boost your career and demonstrate your abilities.
In a world with massive and rapid changes in technology and tighter fiscal boundaries how will engineers need to position themselves to deliver key infrastructure? What skills will engineers need?
Climate Change believers, non-believers, engineers, non-engineers, students and educators of all disciplines are welcome to this debate which should offer some thought provoking and interesting discussion.
In a world of financial constraints, we all need to manage our money effectively. Given the Climate Emergency we are facing and the uncertainties which lie ahead how do we allocate time, talent and money between these two concepts?
A variety of speakers and our Panel Chair will provide thought provoking ideas to enable all to contribute to this healthy debate. Do we mitigate (reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases) or adapt (minimise the effects of climate change)? Do Engineers, or anyone else, fully understand the concept of climate change adaptation?
We shall explore:
There is much to debate and discuss including:
We shall welcome everyone at 17:45 where you can network with some light refreshments. The debate will start at 18:15 with an expected close circa 19:30.
The debate is in the main lecture theatre of The Stephenson Building.
Information on parking around the university.
This debate is hosted jointly by ICE Regional Advisory Board (RAB) and the ICE Teesside Branch. Special thanks to the ICE Graduates and Students who via the Climate Change Forum have provided ideas and food for thought.
This event could broaden your knowledge and skills, and develop personal qualities hence count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Registration preferred, non ICE Members can sign in as guests.
