Guest Speaker: Global Engineering for a Small Planet: A Vision of Success

Thursday, June 2

The engineering profession must embrace a new mission statement—to contribute to the building of a more sustainable, stable, and equitable world. A new form of engineering education is needed to cover a wide range of technical and non-technical issues in order to train global citizen engineers capable of operating in a multi-cultural world.
