Bridging the gap between research (academia) and industry while transitioning into 4IR.
Nala Consultancy & Projects is the official host of the 3rd Global Engineering Symposium(GES) in South Africa in collaboration with the SAIMM-YPC. The GES hosts a highly engaged international audience of technical, operational and policy making engineers in both academia and industry discussing current trends within these fields.
The rest of the world has slowly transitioned into the 4IR and countries such as Japan, South Korea and Germany have proven to be successful in the transition. South Africa is currently exposed to the same trend within the African continent. Therefore, such discussions will assist in unraveling paths to follow in order to achieve a sustainable transition into Industry 4.0. Having students as the cornerstone for the future of both academia and industry, we need to find ways to equip them for the transition and help them increase their competitive advantage in their respective fields.
The event aims,
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Students (Both undergrad and post grad), Young Professionals, Academia, in all fields of Engineering, Information Technology, Mining & Metallurgy, and Management.
To ensure the health and safety of our industry during the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be hosting this event online. You can still claim your CPD points for online attendance
