Brunel International Lecture Series – Australasia lecture

27 October, 2021 @ 9:30 am11:00 am

Entitled “21st Century Leadership is Partnership: How a Coalition of the World’s Engineers Can Change the World”, the series will explore how the engineering community can deliver a carbon-neutral and resilient society by mid-century.

The world is significantly exposed to uncertainty including climate change, globalisation, urbanisation and digitalisation. Engineers must face future challenges now or risk being left behind.

This year’s lecture series will consider what it is to be an engineer, and whether this meets the needs of a future workforce that can deliver resilient and sustainable systems. Debating whether engineers need to think differently to deal with the global uncertainty we are facing, the lecture will discuss how systems engineering and understanding is needed to bring it all together, and whether engineers are well placed to deal with the complex systemic challenges ahead of us.

The series will discuss – globally and locally – the role of engineers, the current practices, the gaps in capabilities and in the workforce, particularly thinking about the need for more women, alongside a more geopolitically diverse workforce.

The 13th Brunel International Lecture Series was launched in London on 2 December 2020, and since then has visited seven regions. The Australasia regional lecture will be the last virtual event before closing the lecture tour in London on 1 December 2021.

Speakers to include:
Seth Schultz, CEO, The Resilience Shift (Brunel Lecturer)

Matt Colton, ICE Council Member for Asia Pacific

Matthew Colton, Director of Engineering Knowledge, ICE

They will be joined by a panel of regional experts.
