YPEC Workshop 1 - Live with Innovation

Have you ever faced any problems that you find it hard to look for inventive directions or methods? Are you interested in knowing more about how an experienced engineer would work on innovation projects or what tools they use to generate inventive ideas systematically?

If you answer a “yes” to yourself to either one of the above questions, you would not like to miss our creative thinking workshop “Live with Innovation” on 14th March, 2015 (Saturday), organised by the Young Professionals Exhibition & Competition 2015 (YPEC 2015) of the IET Hong Kong Younger Members Section!

Two experts from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and The Institution of Systematic Innovation (ISI) shall lead you to a brand new path on problem solving with their expertise, techniques and skills. Prepare yourself with a list of queries on “My Ways of Thinking” and bring it up to the speakers during Q&A!

The following are some details of the seminar:
