Being involved in the activities of the IEEE Central Texas Section, I want to promote the workshop that we are hosting next Friday, February 26. The “Innovators, Engineers & Entrepreneurs” workshop, a full day at the AT&T Conference Center on the south side of the University of Texas at Austin campus. This will be our capstone event for Engineers Week.
The workshop will feature some well known speakers – Bob Metcalfe, co-inventor of Ethernet; Donna Wilkins, founder of Charity Dynamics; and Devon Ryan, founder, LION Mobile – among others. Please take a look at the program and see if the presentations are of interest.
Workshop topics include:
- Power & Energy, Energy Storage, Photovoltaics, Water
- Internet of Things
- Privacy and Security
- Incorporating Legal Organization, Intellectual Property
- Robotics, 3-D Printing, Manufacturing Automation
If you are thinking of creating a start up, then this will be of great value. Among the presentations are:
- startup funding
- how to start a company
- working with legal teams
- dealing with security
The workshop is open to all interested parties. You can still register on-line or Friday at the door, though the cost jumps up to $125.
