Digital Transformation

Few innovations have transformed engineering over the past decades as completely as digital technologies. The rapid emergence of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, blockchain and the Internet-of-Things (IoT) ensure that this trend will continue for the decades ahead.

Digital technologies are powerful engineering tools; however, they also come with significant risks in terms of cybersecurity, privacy, confidentiality, the digital divide and national security just to name a few. Today engineered systems have to be both physically and virtually safe and secure.

Throughout its programs the Academy seeks to promote a responsible leadership in digital transformation.
