Date: 02-27-2023

Time: 01:00 PM

Location: DiMenna-Nyselius Library Auditorium, 101

In this talk, Dr. Fudano, the School of Engineering, and Dolan School of Business will explore the challenges and opportunities that engineers face in a rapidly changing "globalized world." We will make a comparative examination between the United States and Japan to better understand the notion of what it means to be an engineer, with a particular emphasis on the concept of profession. We will also discuss the ethical implications of the evolving nature of engineering practice, as well as the responsibilities that engineers have to "hold paramount the safety, health, and well-being of society" in a globalized world.
