CSEI 2020 Distinguished Masterclass on Systems Integration

CSEI 2020 Distinguished Masterclass on Systems Integration
23 September 2020
16:00 - 17:00
Webinar

The Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation is hosting its 2020 Distinguished Master Class on Systems Integration (Online). The invited speakers, Professor Olivier De Weck (MIT) and Andrew Wolstenholme, have long and distinguished careers in delivering complex projects and products in aerospace and construction. The webinar will be chaired by Professor Jennifer Whyte.

Systems integration is a key challenge for construction. Questions include:

  • How can the increasingly complex systems involved in major projects can be integrated?
  • What potential lessons can be learned from other complex product and system industries, such as aerospace?
  • How can the transition from project to operations best be managed?
  • As construction looks to restart, reset and recover post-Covid, new questions also arise about how complex infrastructure systems can be understood and what projects should be developed.

Who should attend?

The webinar is particularly tailored to those with experience of systems integration challenges, and we will enable participation and questions from senior colleagues. We invite our colleagues working on infrastructure systems and construction, involved in the delivery of major projects, and in shaping policy through work in government and in professional organizations, including the Royal Academy of Engineering, Institution of Civil Engineers, UK Collaboratorium on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) and Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB). Because of the importance of this topic, we also welcome interested others. To to apply for a place please click here.
