About the Talk:

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think”
- Albert Einstein

The world is in a constant state of change, with multidisciplinary innovations now common in engineering. In the fast-changing areas of science and technology, we need to strike a balance between learning current state-of-the-art (which is always heading to obsolescence) and strengthening our understanding of the scientific principles behind technological breakthroughs.

In this talk, Prof. Rhea P. Liem (MAE) will share her insights on the university as a place to learn how to learn, and a platform for students’ self-discovery activities, which are timeless.
