IFEES Awards and Keynotes

Welcome: Alaa Ashmawy
Commemoration of Luis Scavarda: Uriel Cukierman
IFEES Duncan Fraser Award History: Ariela Sofer
Presentation by MathWorks, P.J. Boardman

Mathworks Keynote: Dr. Tanya Morton, "Tackling Climate Change with Education, Research, and Industrial Collaboration", Director Worldwide Customer Success Engineering, MathWorks
In a recent Times Higher Education Leaders survey, 80% of leaders in higher education said that the pursuit of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) informs how their institution operates. Climate action is amongst the most critical of the SDGs - if we don’t tackle climate change, then many of the other SDGs will become unattainable. In this talk, we’ll look at the 3 elements of the Paris Agreement as a framework for climate action, and highlight examples of how engineers and scientists are contributing to the goals of the agreement. We’ll then take a deeper dive into the engineering megatrend that is the electrification of everything. We will look at examples of how engineers and scientists are collaborating across Education, Research and Industry to tackle the climate crisis. Finally, we will share resources that can help engineering educators prepare students to address the world’s grand challenges.
