About the conference

The third annual Young Engineers’ Conference explores the theme of Engineering a Resilient Future.

This conference, designed and developed by young engineers for young engineers, provides a platform for exploring critical issues. Technical presentations and practical workshops will examine how engineers can develop the ability to anticipate, endure, adapt and thrive within a changing environment.

Keynote speaker Caroline Field, Resilience Practice Leader, MMI Engineering, will share her expertise on the speciality knowledge required to design and analyse structures to be resilient in extreme events.

Oliver Broadbent, Think Up, will lead a new interactive workshop to the conference, exploring the hidden components of a brief and introducing the concept of the designer’s paradox, fundamental to understanding design as an iterative process.
