iFriday, Jul 12th, 2013 comments by emily

The 4th annual SAWomEng @Network Cocktail Function was held in Cape Town earlier this year. The event, a highlight within the SAWomEng Conference Week, provided a platform for engineering students and graduates to network with influential members working within the engineering and associated industries.

The evening began with a discussion dealing with innovation in engineering within the African context. This fascinating debate was led by SAWomEng co-founder Mabohlale Addae and consisted of a panel of 4 experts. The guest speakers included Sarah O Carrol, a past SAWomEng Conference delegate, Future Cape Town founder Rashiq Fataar, a past IBM executive; and the SAWomEng Conference guest speaker and all-round inspirational thought leader Dr Elizabeth Rasekoala. The speakers covered a wide range of topics within the theme, which sparked much interest into the future of engineering within the South African condition. This set the stage for the second part of the evening, where aspiring engineers and engineering professionals were able network while continuing the discussion on innovative engineering.

The event was a huge success, and initiated much excitement into the possibilities for aspiring engineers to face complex conditions through groundbreaking and innovative design.
