Dean and Industry Design Workshop

Turning insight into action

Since 2017, the GEDC Industry Forum has brought together leaders from the private sector, education and stakeholder organisations to develop the engineering leaders, experts and innovators of the future. The collaborative and creative format presents an opportunity to leverage collective knowledge and experience while developing an influential and meaningful dialogue. As we continue to adapt and respond to the ongoing disruption and transformation of industry, education and society we have a tremendous amount to learn from and share with each other. Our mission is to enable university-industry collaboration to address significant global challenges drawing on the four core themes below to do so.
