Dr. Carlos Bazan, P.Eng.

Have you ever wondered about N.L.'s technology sector and why engineers make great entrepreneurs?

This Speaking of Engineering Lecture was first presented on April 27, 2021.

Newfoundland and Labrador’s technology sector is stimulating economic growth and fostering private-sector job creation directly and indirectly through support provided to industries such as health care, oil and gas, mining, energy, fisheries, aquaculture, and more.

Today’s economic activity has shifted to a greater dependence on knowledge production and utilization. Given that knowledge and innovation play increasing roles in fostering economic competitiveness, universities have become essential players in the knowledge economy, acting as catalysts of socio-economic development.

Join Dr. Carlos Bazan, Memorial University’s Engineering Chair in Entrepreneurship, as he highlights Memorial University’s contributions to the local innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem and to engineering entrepreneurship, and why engineers make great entrepreneurs.

Speaking of Engineering is hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University and the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador.
