Demystifying Digital Engineering

Thursday, 23 Mar 2023

NCC, Bristol

The National Composites Centre (NCC) and the Digital Engineering Technology & Innovation (DETI) partners: CFMS, Digital Catapult, Universities of the West of England, Bristol & Bath, will be holding an event focused on ‘Demystifying Digital Engineering’, taking place at the NCC, Bristol, 23rd March, 2-4.30pm.

Brian Holliday, Managing Director for Siemens Digital Industries & Co-Chair of Made Smarter Commission, will be delivering a keynote presentation on “Digital Transformation Imperative”.

As a research, innovation, and skills initiative, DETI has been helping companies to identify and develop the tools, technologies and processes to accelerate digital engineering capabilities and the skills needed to embed digital.

Guests will have the opportunity to view and interact with a range of digital technology and skills demonstrators that accelerate engineering transformation, identifying efficiencies in product, process and technology development, inspiring the next generation of engineers to engage with digital.

Demonstrations will cover digital learning factories, AR/VR in composite production, AI/simulation in the design process, haptics robotics, through to digital skills for workforce development and STEM activities to inspire the next generation of digital engineers.
