Design + Engineering: Finding the Balance Between Form and Function

The connection between design and engineering is strong, but can seem invisible to the unfocused eye. During this panel discussion, experts will be exploring the relationship between design and engineering, and how these two disciplines can create and ‘play’ together. Join our panel of industrial engineers and designers, software engineers, and web designers for this lively conversation. Audience input/questions will be valued.

Moderated by:
