Engineering Change 2012 is a national engineering conference to increase awareness and knowledge of international developments. The conference incorporates a number of respected and experienced professionals in engineering and non-engineering fields within and outside of New Zealand. Attendees will include members of New Zealand's leading engineering companies, NGO’s and tertiary institutions as well as the general public.
The conference will incorporate a series of interactive, exciting and dynamic sessions that engages participants, encourage open communication and build links across engineering and development. The content of the conference will be arranged around three central themes:
• Appropriate technology: Discover why first world technological solutions don’t work in third world countries, and what might be a better approach
• Pacific and Maori development: Gain a deeper insight of development in the Pacific region and in the Maori community, and why you should be thinking about it.
• Pathways to development and personal leadership: What is your pathway to making an impact? Hear inspiring and motivational stories from people who are out there and making the world a better place.
This is a great opportunity to network with other like-minded organisations, professionals and students to build relationships and ideas to further the areas of engineering and development.
• Develop your capability and knowledge through:
Hearing about past experiences and current development works in engineering and in other fields;
Gain a wider perspective on engineering and sustainable development; and
Learning about skills to implement engineering solutions in a sustainable manner for communities.
• Contribute towards your IPENZ Continued Professional Development.
