The Next Level Talks initiative as part of the Engineering Students' Society at the University of Alberta hosted the event at the Donadeo Innovation Center for Engineering Building in 4th October 2018. During the panel, Dr. Farag tried to explain the consulting engineering challenges as a field that tackles the complex multi faceted problems of today. Undergraduate and graduate engineering students actively engaged in the discussion, many questions were answered during the session.
