The Autumn Lecture 2015: Internationalising Scotland’s Engineering Excellence
26 October 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:45 pmFree
Engineering Scotland is delighted to invite you to join us for the 2015 Autumn Lecture, when we will welcome Dr Scott Younger, OBE PhD D.Eng. CEng FICE, Technical Director of Nusantara Infrastructure, Jakarta and Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, to address us on how we can reap advantage and competitive edge from the internationalisation of Scotland’s excellence in engineering expertise. Dr Younger, who this year received an Honorary Degree from the University and is regarded as a splendid, contemporary example of Scottish engineering skill and nous, has spent four decades working in ten different countries. He was responsible for setting up the Society of Professional Engineers in Thailand in the 1980s and he will share his experience of the opportunities and the challenges of creating overseas partnerships, educational initiatives and professional organisations. In the next 30-40 years, 90% of the world’s population will live in Asia – that’s why it’s paramount that we, in Scotland, develop and maintain commercial and mutually beneficial relationships with Asia – Indonesia alone has a population of 240 million.
The Lecture is kindly hosted by Professor John Marsh, Head of School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow and you are warmly invited to join us at the Charles Wilson Lecture Theatre, on the corner of University Avenue and Gibson Street at 5.30pm for light refreshments. The Lecture will commence at 6pm and we will close at 7.45pm.
We look forward to welcoming you on the evening of Monday, 26th October. The event is free but you do need to register via Eventbrite by clicking here.
