Talks will be provided in a fast-paced lightning format covering topics that span the engineering, natural science, social science, business, planning, design, and computing disciplines.

From buildings to transportation, finance to logistics, climate to energy, cities to farms, manufacturers to workers, and profit to equity – find out what is going on right now at one of the world’s preeminent research and teaching universities.
