A New Mindset for the Engineer of the Future

World around us are moving rapidly driven by technological innovation and revolution in Data Science/Artificial Intelligence. Engineers of the future must be able to adapt and harness the power of data and technology in the context of system thinking and leadership. In this talk, I would like to share a few decades of my experience as an engineering leader in the US, how we adapt, evolve and prepare ourselves to succeed in an ever-changing world. In particular, I would like to focus on how we should prepare ourselves--as the world around us are being automated--by taking advantage of solid engineering background, system thinking, and data-driven decision-making complemented by management and leadership skills.
