About the conference
The Engineering Perspectives and Impact Conference is an event hosted by the California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This Ted-talk style event aims to bridge the gap between students’ understanding of engineering in academia and professional experience in industry. Eleven speakers representing a diverse range of engineering backgrounds, from Cal Poly faculty to professional engineers, will present on topics such as rapid prototyping, entrepreneurship, engineering history, lightweight electric vehicles, and AI Ethics.
Speakers will deliver fast-paced and engaging 15-minute long presentations on their specified subjects and participate in a question-and-answer panel where attendees can engage with the speakers. The lunch break will feature an engineering club showcase with PROVE, Human Powered Vehicle, Engineering World Health, Future Fuels, Medical Design Club, Quality of Life Plus, and others. Lunch is provided for all attendees.
The speakers contributing their ideas and experience are what makes this conference an amazing opportunity for both students and professionals to gain better insight into aspects of an incredibly diverse field. Among them are men and women of tremendous academic and professional accomplishment whose perspective on the field of engineering are invaluable.
