Event description

Description

You're invited to the Institution of Engineering and Technology's Annual Dinner, with guest speaker Dr. Kourosh Kayvani, Global Director - Excellence & Expertise at Aurecon.

With processes of automation and digitisation impacting our global workforce, Kourosh will explore what this means for the engineering practice and give insight into the skills that engineers of the future will need to master. Kourosh will also share project examples of how implementing these skills have already shaped how Aurecon is thinking differently about design challenges and solutions.

Please join us for a great evening of canapés on arrival, a 3-course meal accompanied with wine, beer and intelligent conversations.
