Universities are ancient institutions and have long been considered the melting pot of society’s ideas, culture, and change. But against the backdrop of new technologies, what role will universities play in the future? Will the advent of digital learning mean that university campuses become a thing of the past?
In this episode, Professor Ian Harper, Dean of Melbourne Business School at the University of Melbourne and Susie Pearn, Client Director for Education and Research at Aurecon, discuss how universities need to reimagine their futures and what role engineers can play to achieve this transformation.

About Engineering Reimagined
Throughout history, engineers have been leaders in inventing and creating some of society’s most ground-breaking developments. Just think of the Egyptian pyramids, Roman viaducts, the aeroplane, skyscrapers – the list is endless!
But what role do engineers play today, and what does the future hold?
Welcome to Engineering Reimagined. In this podcast series we will explore how, like engineers, people from all walks of life are reimagining the future and their leadership roles in it.
Technology is disrupting our world at a faster rate than any other change in our history. To meaningfully contribute, and to continue to lead society in some of its greatest advancements, engineering needs to be reimagined. Humanity still depends on engineering to help solve the wicked problems our world faces. Not only can engineers make things ‘work’; they can use smart thinking, combined with digital technologies, and a focus on human-centred outcomes to co-create a future in which communities and individuals can thrive.
Each episode will feature an interviewer speaking to a different guest. What can we learn from their compelling and inspiring stories to help us reimagine engineering, to lead the world to a better future?
