The IET Prestige Lecture 2010

Transition Engineering : The most important engineering discipline in human history

The IET Prestige Lecture is free to attend and will be of interest to professional engineers and anybody with an interest in alternative energy. It is also intended to promote engineering as a profession.

Late intermediate (year 7-8) and high school students are particularly welcome. The lecture is presented every year throughout New Zealand but this is the first time that it will be given north of the Auckland area.

You can find out more on our website at: www.doubtlessbay.co.nz/IET or contact the IET Far North representative, Martin Wale :

phone 09 406 0264 or email mawale@theiet.org.

Date:

Thursday 22 April 2010

Times and Venues:

12.00 noon : Taipa Area School Cultural Centre - Doubtless Bay

5.00 pm : Kerikeri High School Library - Bay of Islands

Lecturer:

Dr Susan Krumdieck is Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury where she lectures on Thermodynamics, Energy Engineering and directs the Final Year Projects Programme. She is the director of the Advanced Energy and Materials Systems Laboratory, an interdisciplinary research group including engineering, sciences, social and community organizations.

Dr Krumdieck will present the fundamental framework for Transition Engineering, the art and applied science of system change. Engineers will find the structure of the framework familiar. But then, she will push the boundaries of engineering and technology development with the radical suggestion that the new field of Transition Engineering will emerge to address the 21st Century's great challenges; climate disruption, resource depletion, ecosystem reclamation and population reduction. The lecture will include some examples of Transition Engineering innovations
