Our April Luncheon will be held on April 7th from 11:30AM-1:00PM at the Crowne Plaza in Blue Ash (map). ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer Victor Goldschmidt, Ph.D will present Thinking Like an Engineer and Societal Challenges. The presentation will highlight the nature of engineering thought processes, recognizing the role in problem solving, looking for alternatives, using creativity, thinking in a pragmatic manner, considering safety, and always asking questions. Societal problems exhibiting failure in thinking like engineers will be presented. These are to be examples and challenge for critical thinking on the part of engineering professionals while responsibly serving society.
