Toys 4.0 Engineers

Waterford Chamber and Waterford Institute of Technology are joining forces to present ‘Toys 4.0 Engineers’ on Friday 22nd September 2017 in the WIT Arena, Waterford

 

As part of its Annual Conference on Engineering Technology, Innovation and Recruitment, Waterford Chamber

has recognised the skills shortage within industry and as a result, there will also be a focus on Engineering Jobs (current and medium-term) and Careers (medium to long-term).

The target audience is a ‘mix’, but includes qualified people looking for current opportunities and unqualified people (mature & leaving cert) thinking about Engineering careers.

What is the Toys4.0Engineers?

The overall context is the broad concept of ‘Industry 4.0’ that is driving the Technology, Innovation and Recruitment agendas of companies in all sectors of the economy.

Engineers need to develop and use new ‘toys’ to address the many competitive challenges – these ‘toys’ include Robotics, Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing, Big Data, Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Drones, Electric Vehicles, Green Energy, Sensors etc.

The 2017 Toys4.0Engineers event will combine a series of technical presentations and cutting-edge demonstrations of advanced technologies from leading experts.

It will also contain a showcase of approximately 50 displays by companies and organisations (regional, national and International) across a broad range of sectors including med-tech, pharma, food, infrastructure, energy.

Robots, smart bikes, virtual reality, electric cars, vision systems, drones...it’s all going on at Toys4.0Engineers Conference & Expo at WIT Arena on September 22nd.

Organised by Waterford Chamber and Waterford Institute of Technology, Toys4.0Engineers is a must visit for CEOs, CTOs and Engineering personnel at all levels who are interested in advancing their knowledge of the latest technologies for adoption in their own companies, as well as those looking for a career in the engineering sector.
