Digital Design and the Future of Structural Engineers

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

Emily Scoones and Paul Astle from Ramboll gave us the pleasure of presenting our first industry talk of the year! 

They gave us a history of the uses of technology in the past and its potential uses in the near future and through some very comprehensive examples of projects Ramboll works on, students attending got a better sense on how technology is used in the civil engineering industry, wether it be for structural design or to work collaboratively with architects. Some key questions they answered were: why, how and when are tools designed to help engineers at Ramboll? What will AI do for us? What would be the next steps?

Thank you very much Emily, Paul and Ramboll!
