The world is filled with complex questions: How do we solve the climate crisis? How do we deal with globalization? And how do we create a world where people are safe, happy, and healthy? There is no doubt that engineers play an important part in answering these questions, but what does it take to be a modern engineer? This is the topic of our EuroTeQ webinar Future Competencies of the Engineer – and we would love for you to join us. 

At DTU, we believe that interdisciplinarity, innovation, and collaboration are indispensable parts of a modern engineering mindset. For this webinar, we will investigate how these important competencies are taught, learned, and come into play in the modern job market. You will learn more about the latest research in the field and maybe even rethink or expand your understanding of what it means to be an engineer of the future. During the webinar, you will hear from researchers, a lecturer, and a student on their view on so-called “soft skills” such as collaboration and communication and how they are essential for the next generation of engineers.
