Transforming Engineering with AI

Be part of the future of engineering by attending our workshop in Johannesburg. Explore how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can revolutionise the industry and empower you to drive change in power and water management; using sustainable practices and renewable energy. Collaborate with fellow engineering professionals, leverage your expertise, and devise cutting-edge solutions to engineering challenges using the latest AI technologies.

Dr. Steve Mackay, EIT’s Dean of Engineering, will be visiting our learning centre in Johannesburg on Thursday 6th July 2023 from 2 pm – 4 pm to present in person. The workshop is designed to provide information and provoke discussion on some of the emerging technologies influencing change in the engineering landscape and give you useful tools to take with you.

Discover the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Steve will look at a range of situations to explain how AI and ML can be harnessed, with a focus on the current challenges of power and water in South Africa. Some of the education initiatives that EIT is driving will also be demonstrated.

In groups, you will then tackle problems using AI’s Prompt Engineering. You will find solutions to a range of issues in mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering. You will also discover why and how your experiences and know-how as engineering professionals are still critical when deriving engineering solutions.
