 Paul Kassabian, PE
Associate Principal, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger
We are at an exciting time in the design and construction profession. With computational design and automation, we provide more and better technical information for projects than ever before. However, with that, we require a different skill set from our engineers; one which the typical academic degree and subsequent PE exam does not currently provide. In this talk, Paul Kassabian will provide a review of automation and its effect on both trades and professions, examples of current computational automation of engineering tasks, and thoughts on where education and training for engineers should go from here.
