The American Society for Engineering Management presents the next webinar in the Academic Partnership Series...

Harnessing Engineering Management for Sustainable Development

Presenter: Prof. Simon P. Philbin, PhD MBA

London South Bank University, United Kingdom

Wednesday, 07 December 2022

11 am - 12 pm ET

Sustainable development rests on the delivery of outcomes according to environmental, social and economic factors. Across the world there are many challenges for realizing sustainability and therefore the questions arises: How can we harness engineering management on the path towards sustainable development? This webinar will explore the concept of sustainable development and present the findings from two research studies that draw on different elements of engineering management. The first project investigated the measurement of the sustainable development goals for infrastructure projects, and the second project adopted techno-economic analysis to assess the viability of renewable energy sources.
