Collaboration between industry and academia can drive innovation and progress in many industries, including Civil Engineering. To encourage thought about this matter the SA/NT Chapter of the AGS, the SA branch of the ICE and Aurecon invite students and young practitioners of Civil Engineering to make a 2 minute video addressing one of the topics below:
Can new fields of study and activity (e.g. artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, etc) have a major impact on civil engineering practice unless there is good collaboration between industry and academia?
Is it safe in for a Civil Engineering Organisation not to innovate? What are the risks in innovation and how can they be managed?
What systems, frameworks and/or programs can be put in place to promote better collaboration in research between industry, academia and government?
Videos will be judged on the criteria below:
- Applicants must be a Civil Engineering student or a practising civil engineer with less than 10 years of experience
- Format of video to be MP4
- Maximum size of video file to be 30MB
- Aspect ratio is 4:3
- Maximum duration of video is 2 minutes
- Deadline for submission of video file, name and contact details of contestant and authorisation form is 5pm Wednesday 10 July 2019
The prizes are donated by Aurecon. The best video wins a $200 prize. The runner up wins $100. The winning video will be announced at AGS SA/NT Young Geotechnical Professionals and Students Evening starting at 6pm Monday 15 July 2019 in Room 132, Engineering North Building, at the University of Adelaide. Best 5 videos to be shown at this event. This event will be attended by some of Adelaide ‘s leading geotechnical engineers.
