The NUS Greater Good Series “SMART Engineering: Smart City. IOT. Manufacturing” was held at Four Seasons Hotel on 3 October 2017. This is the second year that NUS Engineering has participated in the event which saw a turnout of more than 150 guests.
Organised by the NUS Development Office, the Greater Good Series aims to promote leadership in philanthropy and raise awareness of the impact of philanthropy in NUS and the community it serves. This is achieved through outreach activities, such as talks, conferences and forums by eminent leaders.
In his opening address, Professor Chua Kee Chaing, Dean of NUS Engineering, briefly introduced the Greater Good Series, as well as a broad view of Engineering and Smart Nation. He spoke of the convergence of technologies and how this impacts society.
