Join Professor Nic Smith as he launches into a discussion about how engineering and technology are changing lives faster than ever before. He will explain why the sky isn’t the limit – but is where we should be focusing our resources.

Nic will illustrate what the Faculty of Engineering is working on to continue the country’s pioneering spirit, and why it is crucial to build an economy focused on technology.
