Future of Chemical Engineers Forum Speakers

All speakers will be addressing the one question –"As global industry trends towards a sustainable, environmentally compatible, cost competitive and technically enhanced future, traditional roles for chemical engineers will decline. Classical chemical engineering theory, skills and teaching will struggle for relevance in the fast-paced and modern working environments of the future. So what is the future for chemical engineering and for chemical engineers and how do we prepare our next generation of graduates for this new age?"
