• About the Conference

    The Annual Technical Conference 2014 will examine the role of Engineers and Engineering in natural disasters (such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes) and man-made catastrophes (like oil spills, power outages, and chemical disasters). The main objective is to determine our technological capacity to prevent, manage and recover from such disasters in Trinidad and Tobago and in the wider Caribbean Region.

    Ultimately, the Conference will provide a deeper understanding of engineering codes, inter-governmental agency oversight and the technology available to manage disasters. It will also assess the current gaps that exist within our institutions and explore more efficient engineering solutions for dealing with potential disasters of all types. The Technical Conference provides an excellent networking opportunity for attendees and participants.

    The Conference programme will comprise Keynote Speakers, Panel Discussions and Presentations from Experts.
