Engineers Australia’s Chief Engineer, Jane MacMaster has been announced as a headline presenter at the World of Drones and Robotics Congress 2021, in Queensland.
At the hybrid event, held on the 15-16th November, MacMaster will sit on the ‘Chief Scientists in conversation’ panel alongside Queensland’s Chief Scientist Professor Hugh Possingham and Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering CEO Kylie Walker.
The congress will bring together drone experts from across the globe to cover key themes such as the use of technology for good and the opportunity for drone use in emergency or safety operations.
Queensland has a clear strategy for the use of drones, created in 2018, outlining its vision to become a world-leader in drone technology and application.
Since then, drones have been used in Queensland to help researchers in many ways including counting turtles on the Great Barrier Reef and for crocodile management across the state.
As a partner of the World of Drones and Robotics Congress 2021, Engineers Australia has two in-person and up to five virtual tickets to give away to graduate members.
