If our future economy is going to be fully automated what do you need to know about work, technology and business opportunities in a robotic world?

If you would like to find out come and hear Ian Riley the Technical Director of the ‘amazing’ Labman at the first Technology and Enterprise Club event of Semester 2. Labman is a company that has been building robotic systems on Teesside since 1979! Now exporting to over 40 companies they synthesises mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science into a winning interdisciplinary combination.

Ian will talk about what makes Labman a brilliant globally trading local company, but will also do a bit of futurology on what we should expect in a robot enabled world. What sort of skills will graduates need, how will they innovate and create, where will robotics be going next? Come and hear Ian to find out.

Ian is responsible for managing the specification, design, build, compliance and support of Labman’s automated laboratory systems. Ian is also responsible for Labman’s direction as a company day-to-day; including HR, project guidance and key customer accounts and sales.
