"For every engineering action there is an equal and opposite social reaction." 

What are the grand challenges for our society and civilization as we look ahead to the year 2050, and how is engineering going to shape not only our individual well-being but also our societal well-being? 

Dr. Norman Augustine, Retired CEO and Chairman of Lockheed Martin, will present and discuss the knowledge, skills, and perspectives future engineers will need as they contribute to addressing societal grand challenges.
