Electric Vehicle Conversion

March 31 @ 19:00 -- SES Engineering Month Lecture―Agile Engineering

Agile Engineering -- Felix Akanbi

Traditionally, it was almost taboo for Engineering projects to practice Agile methodology as it was considered a structureless practice with such a large degree of unpredictability. With Agile engineering, however, teams can quickly iterate, test, and gather feedback on product designs. They are able to translate large chunks of work into manageable tasks, resulting in faster and more accurate product development and project delivery. In this talk, it will be considered how agile techniques can be applied to engineering projects to achieve success beyond traditional approaches. 

Join the SES to learn about Agile Engineering from Felix Akanbi.
