Nick McCrossan and Christoph Eberle of Mott MacDonald will present an entertaining view of the history of bored tunnels and their design. They will consider what the future holds for the industry and for the engineers that design and build this amazing infrastructure.
Will the use of artificial intelligence and increasing design automation lead to the end of the engineering profession? Or can we adapt our skills to remain just as essential to society in 2100 as we have been for the preceding centuries?
Christoph is a Technical Director in the Tunnels Division of Mott MacDonald. Having qualified as civil engineer in Germany, he has had great pleasure in designing tunnels - both huge and small - ever since.
