Join ICE East Midlands Nottingham, Leicester, and Derby (NLD) Branch for a presentation from Captain James Glass of the Corps of Royal Engineers as he identifies from his own experience how the disciplines in civilian and military engineering differ in the 21st Century.

From a Civil Engineer in the Oil & Gas industry to an Army Reserve Officer within the 65 Works Group Royal Engineers, Captain James Glass has led engineering design and delivery teams on operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and South Sudan providing critical engineering support to Defence in the UK and overseas operations.

Captain Glass will draw on case studies from these projects, the challenges faced and the lessons that can be shared between engineering fields as he reflects on six years of his civilian and military engineering career and experience.
