Digital Technologies for Engineering and Construction

Date: 19 May 2015 : 10:00 - 16:00

Digital skills are core requirements for modern engineers; some of these are embedded and transferable, such as IT for business and planning, others are highly specialist skills closely related to their engineering specialism, such as CAD and BIM for design.

This event will cover a range of digital technologies and applications in various branches of engineering, but the focus will be on those technologies and concepts, such as cloud computing and “Big Data” that will shake our fundamental understanding of how we will work in the future.

This session is ideal for:

  • Curriculum leaders in construction, engineering and IT
  • Lecturers and Lead Teachers in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Maths

This Masterclass is being made available by City & Guilds as a CPD event for teachers and lecturers of the C&G Engineering Techbac and Construction for the Built Environment Techbac. Please advise NEF if you are a C&G Techbac provider.
