Engineers face a critical challenge in designing, managing, and optimizing complex systems for the rapidly changing products of tomorrow. And as the COVID-19 pandemic grips the world, the workforce is tasked with driving projects under high-pressure conditions while collaborating or overseeing distributed teams.

Join MIT's Dr. Bruce G. Cameron, faculty director of the four-course online certificate program: Architecture and Systems Engineering for a candid discussion of the pandemic's effect on the workforce. 

Dr. Cameron will address:

  • The need for extroverted discovery for new connections within organizations 
  • The potential of reduced team sizes and blurred boundaries between teams
  • The "equalizing" effect of remote work
  • And how the four-course online certificate program may be more beneficial than ever before

By attending the live webinar, you will also be able to participate in the Q&A with Dr. Cameron following the presentation. Register for this special free virtual event by filling out the form. You'll receive a confirmation e-mail with further details about the webinar.
