Advancements of engineering technology in 2023

Advancements in engineering technology have revolutionized the way we design, create, and interact with the world around us. This has created new avenues for engineers to address some of the most complex challenges the world faces today. 

Here are some of the most significant advancements in engineering technology: 

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning - digitalization has played a key role in improving engineering processes. For example, engineers are better able to predict failures, automate tasks, and save time and resources through more accurate simulations, faster prototyping, and data-driven decision-making. 
  • Decarbonization strategies - decarbonization refers to the process of removing or reducing the output of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. SNC-Lavalin is on a mission to engineer Net-Zero which means our engineers are exploring carbon capture, renewable energy sources, and more. 
  • Material conversion - this refers to the process of changing the properties, shape, and form of materials to meet specific design requirements and functional needs. For example, 3D printing is employed to create prototypes and customized parts. This allows engineers to improve the performance and efficiency of different materials.
