Speaking of Engineering Public Lectures

The Speaking of Engineering Lecture Series promotes engineering and raises awareness of engineering-related issues among students, the academic community and the general public, which we feel is very important.

The series is an initiative of Memorial’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and is co-sponsored by the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Newfoundland and Labrador (PEGNL). PEGNL is an invaluable asset to our program and our graduates and we are honoured to partner with them to bring you this lecture series.

Our next virtual public lecture will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. NT.

The abrupt closure of offices and workplaces around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the disruption of traditional work methods.

Many workers were required to adapt quickly to this new era of remote work; some thrived, while others struggled. Numerous companies transformed their methods of achieving their goals.

During this Speaking of Engineering public lecture, a panel of young engineering alumni will discuss their personal experiences from the past 18 months and how the field of engineering, and their respective workplaces, have changed.

Hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial and the Professional Engineers & Geoscientists Newfoundland & Labrador, the event will be held virtually on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. (NT).


In-person Speaking of Engineering public lectures take place at 7 p.m. N.L. time in the S.J. Carew (Engineering) Building, EN2006, with free parking in lot 60 (Second floor of Earth Sciences parking garage). Admission is free. All are welcome.
