Industry Engagement Day

More than 120 delegates representing approx. 30 companies attended the second annual Industry Engagement Day on July 5, hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.

The one-day event at the Emera Innovation Exchange, Signal Hill campus, aimed to bring together industry representatives with university researchers to exchange ideas to help tackle challenges related to oceans, shipbuilding, Arctic shipping, energy, machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics and drones.

Building upon last year’s engagement day, the event featured engaging talks from technical industry, provincial government and Memorial University representatives.

Sessions held throughout the day encouraged attendees to engage with each other and focus on problem-solving.
