The 2017 Speaker Series "Civil Engineering Innovations for an Interconnected World " is a month-long event where four prominent and well-respected members in the civil engineering field give interactive presentations. This year's series builds upon last year's event, "The Big Picture: Engineering your Career" by taking a look at innovative technologies in the Civil Engineering Industry and how they are applied both locally and internationally. Join us for these intimate and interactive presentations with industry leaders while they share substantial insight and experiences.
"When Imagination Drives Engineering " Juan Varela, PE, QSD - May 2nd: This event will focus on the design and construction of the recently openned Shanghai Disneyland Resort in China. The Resort is a joint venture between the Walt Disney Company and the Chinese government that cost $5.5 billion to build. The Resort consists of the Shanghai Disneyland Park, hotels, an entertainment district, and a transportation hub. The themepark faced the unique challenge of combining traditional Disney stories and themes with attractions specifically designed for Chinese guests. Find more information about the speaker here
