Faculty of Engineering to host virtual public lecture

On Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. NDT, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, in partnership with the Professional Engineers & Geoscientists Newfoundland & Labrador, will host a virtual public lecture about how the pandemic has transformed the workplace.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the abrupt closure of offices and workplaces around the world resulted in a new era of remote work for people in all disciplines. The traditional way of ‘doing business’ was disrupted and professionals were forced to adapt quickly to “get the job done,” or risk being left behind.

Some thrived while others struggled. However, regardless of those experiences, the pandemic has transformed how many companies are achieving goals as they move towards a post-pandemic world.

Join us as our panel of young engineering alumni discuss personal experiences from the past 18 months and how the field of engineering, and their respective workplaces, have adapted to this new way of working.

All are welcome. Webex link here.
