About this event

Please note that this webinar will be held from 19.00-20.30 HK time.

In this joint webinar organised by ICE HKA G&S and IET HK YMS, we are honoured to have Mr Jacky Chan, Associate Director and Advanced Digital Engineering (ADE) Leader, to share with us on the topic ‘Digital transformation: unlocking engineering excellence’.

New paradigms are shaping the problems we face and the solutions we need. Neither engineering skills nor digital skills alone are enough. We see that digital transformation is essential to keep us at the forefront of engineering innovation and safeguard our future.

Data is at the core of all our engineering work. We take in various inputs (data), undertake some design (application of information/knowledge we’ve learnt – more data and processes) and deliver a practical application with the results. Using data will enable us to automate and optimise our workflows, develop innovative products and provide clients with deeper insights – it underpins every element of our digital transformation.

This talk will share some real-world examples of how Arup is leveraging digital technology in its digital transformation process to unlock engineering excellence.
