Join us for the 3rd of a 5 part webinar series that will explore the Information Technology forces that are driving change in the Engineering profession. Global and local market conditions, process redesign and technology innovations at the edges are forcing a critical look at the value of design, engineering and construction. The profession is at the critical junction of making process and technology decisions that will affect how work gets done, how technology tools are creating the environment for a 5th Utility of Information Communications Technology (ICT) and how technology can be leveraged to design Smart Buildings and Smart Cities. This 5 part Webinar series is designed to explore real world examples and case studies regarding projects, tools and suggested next steps from around the world. Engineers need to control, manage and lead this transformative process or relegate themselves as subcontractors of design services.
The Internet forever changed the use of computers from commuting to communicating. Today’s job sites are now a blur of devices that compute, communicate and collaborate in ways that were unheard of only a few years ago. Tablets, smartphones, smart watches, interactive hardhats and drones are making their way into being commonplace in the field, providing engineers with valuable information in real time to make informed decisions. Attend this webinar to witness the latest mobile tools, devices and solutions that are changing the way engineers work, learn and practice.
