Just Imagine…Engineering Technology to Design and Experience our World

Mon 21 May 2:30 — 3:30pm

Aurecon, 93 Cambridge Terrace, Christchurch Central, Christchurch, New Zealand

Think it, build it, test it, experience it
This event has already happened!

Have you ever experienced what it’s like to cycle a bike down a path way that hasn’t been built yet? Or have the power to make it rain from the comfort of the indoors? Or modified a toy car with a camera on top and create a rover that can virtually put you in a pipe?

This talk focuses on the idea of trying things out and bringing existing technologies together to problem solve and come up with solutions that bring about new ways of doing something or creating a new experience.

Simon Yorke, Advanced Design Technologist with Aurecon will step you through some of the projects that his team have developed from Aurecon’s Christchurch office.

If you are curious about a career in engineering or technology or maybe you are currently working in the industry...then this talk is for you so go ahead and book your spot to find out how both disciplines are working together to create better outcomes.
