Impact of Technology on Engineering, Design + Construction Post-COVID-19

Technology was changing the face of the engineering industry before COVID-19 and it will certainly play an even greater role in the design process after the pandemic ends. To survive in such a dynamic and turbulent environment, engineering firms will need to think bigger.

The question remains: How? How will engineering firms integrate technology to maintain workforce culture and collaboration during social distancing? How will machine learning, AI and VR change the design process? How will data create new solutions to existing challenges?

The ACEC Research Institute will tackle these questions and more during the first event of its new Future of Engineering Roundtable series, which kicks off June 18 with a panel discussion featuring leading industry futurists on the Impact of Technology on Engineering. Confirmed panelists include:

  • Jose Luis Blanco, partner, McKinsey & Company
  • Mike Haley, vice president of research, Autodesk, Inc.
  • Chris Luebkeman, director for strategic foresight, office of the president, ETH Zurich
  • Heather Wishart-Smith, SVP technology and innovation, Jacobs
  • Moderator: Joseph Bates, ACEC Research Institute
