A New Age of Engineering has arrived. Accelerated by the internet facilitating the connection between innovators and capital; Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, machine learning, and 3-D printing are being realised as solutions through all industries.

The roll-out of these technologies to the Oil & Gas industry is underway right now. The technologies of today were not in the textbooks of five years ago, so “How can Young Professionals Spot, Prepare and Capitalise on opportunities for an industry employing perpetually advancing technology?”
