IEEE COM/SP Chapter - Austin, “Engineers and Government"




As more of the analog world is being converted, analyzed and controlled via the digital domain, the role of the engineer is expanding as well. They face new challenges of scale, adoption, governance, economics and security. Are engineers being properly prepared? Where are there opportunities for engineers to be engaged in these challenges? The speaker will provide a career perspective on the intersection of engineering and governance and the profile of the next generation of engineers.
