School of Civil Engineering

The University of Queensland's School of Civil Engineering, in association with the Ove Arup Foundation, hosts an annual workshop to discuss issues of importance facing the civil engineering profession.

For each workshop, six international and interdisciplinary experts participate in an intense three day discussion where the panellists engage with UQ students, staff, and practicing engineers. This is followed followed by a public keynote presentation and an open panel discussion, during which the audience will be invited to participate.

The Ove Arup Foundation

The Ove Arup Foundation strongly believes in the multi-disciplinary nature of design in engineering and architecture, with Ove famously pioneering a holistic approach to project design throughout his career. In acknowledgement of this approach and of his contribution to the field over many decades, the Ove Arup Foundation is committed to promoting new thinking in education to improve the engineering profession.
