Agile, open-minded, and versatile, the engineer of tomorrow will wear many and more intricate hats. No longer the rational model maker and optimizer, the engineer of the future must generate innovative concepts and develop a more artistic and aesthetic sensibility.
In an industry with numerous challenges – shortages, image crises, technological changes, the 3D revolution – the engineering profession will need to be in a state of constant transformation. Future engineers will see their roles involve architecture, anthropology, and sociology. In a world marked by the end of cheap energy, they must develop a new ethical code, because the profession will hinge around sustainability.
In his talk, Stéphane Marchand, author and editor in chief of ParisTech Review will paint a portrait of the most important trends affecting engineering in the future.
This discussion will be a chance to further the thought process and tackle future issues that will affect engineering professions in Québec from the perspective of an economist, an engineer, a teacher, and a journalist.
This seminar will help participants confront the issues facing the future of engineering professions and raise awareness among managers in engineering firms about evolving business models.
