Australian Engineering Conference 2018

Accelerating technological change is transforming our world by the minute. Automation is radically changing the way we work.

Join the world’s leading engineering professionals and discover how the engineering industry will transform in the years ahead.

This year’s conference will tackle the impacts of engineering challenges, from the ethics and limits of artificial intelligence to the role of robots in our daily lives.

Professor Elanor Huntington, Dean, College of Engineering & Computer Science will be on the panel of 'Engineers as part of the great leap forward' panel discussion.

By 2045, engineers will partner with high-technology in order to venture into a new frontier. However, many will lag behind. The new era will require a new mind-set, sharpened via a whole new set of skills that will need to be embraced.

The panel discussion will focus on what skills are required and how the education system needs to adapt.
