Charles Sturt Director of External Engagement (Bathurst and Orange) Ms Julia Andrews said, “Our free Explorations Series public lectures are about including communities in conversations that interest and inspire them.

“This year we will take some of our Explorations Series into cafes and libraries to make them more accessible than ever.

“Starting with the 2019 EngFest, we will be presenting free Explorations Series talks throughout the year.”

For the EngFest public lecture Mr Ewing will speak on the topic ‘Anything is possible: celebrating the past, present and future!’, and will examine the history of Australian engineering starting with the first people and first engineers of this land.

He will reflect on the major milestones in Engineers Australia’s history, consider current infrastructure investment and opportunities, and look to the future challenge of engineering a sustainable world aligned to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In his role as the General Manager of Engineers Australia (EA) Sydney and Canberra, Mr Ewing is in charge of Sydney and Canberra regional operations of the peak body for engineering practitioners in Australia.

Mr Ewing served Engineers Australia Northern Division as the General Manager from November 2013, prior to his appointment in Sydney, covering Sydney and Canberra.

Before moving to Australia in 2013, most of Mr Ewing’s professional career was with the Scottish Government where he was employed by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (The IET) as Regional Development Manager for Scotland, Northern Ireland and Cumbria in a role that was as wide, varied and interesting as engineering itself.

The 2019 EngFest free public lecture is at 6pm on Tuesday 11 June 2019 in The Pitch Zone (room 127) at Charles Sturt Engineering (building 1305) at Charles Sturt University, Panorama Avenue, Bathurst.
