Engineering your future – Oh the places you will go!
Engineering education has created opportunities that are difficult to imagine for young women and men unfamiliar with potential that an engineering education can unlock. Dr. Striebig will introduce you to some of the engineering development heroes he has met in various locations on the planet during his career. The presentation will address sustainable development projects Dr Striebig has worked on in Benin, Kenya and Rwanda. In addition, Dr. Striebig will challenge the audience to consider their professional goals and present a plan to provide engineering opportunities for students at IUP.
