Engineering has changed the world dramatically in the last 10 years and we are seeing a continuous transformation as the impact of innovations like the Internet and mobile broadband ripple through society.


Engineers have evidently been influential in changing the world but are they changing with it? They are represented by institutions and professional bodies and have been for over 150 years however these now need to move with the times too.



William Webb will use his opening lecture to explore just how engineers changed the world and how their institutions can make the most of the new world they have bought about to build a platform fit for the next 150 years.
