University takes part in the fourth industrial revolution

The University of Wolverhampton is taking part in an event which has been designed to explore responses to the ever changing industrial landscape.

Trowers & Hamlins, a Birmingham based law firm, has partnered with the University along with Dudley College to take part in ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’, a free event which is being held in The Great Hall at Dudley College on Thursday 4th May from 9.30 am until 1.00 pm.

Speakers include the Principal of Dudley College, Lowell Williams and Sara Woodall, Chief Executive at Heantun Housing Association.

Paul Hampton, Head of Built Environment in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Wolverhampton, who is also speaking at the event, said:  “There will be a variety of speakers at the event discussing issues relating to ways in which we create our cities, towns, suburbs and villages.

“I will be focusing on the human impact of building design – looking closely at architecture and new ways of working in the built environment industry.  Many of the technological and industrial advances that are happening now will quickly shape the way we live and work and this will impact not only on industry but most certainly on the way we teach and learn.”

Other topics being discussed include product design, materials manufacture, construction and maintenance, the ways in which we produce and distribute goods and services and food and drink.

Book a place at the event.
