Technology is all around us, impacting our daily lives with endless new opportunities. Bringing us changes and chances every day. It has connected the world, erasing borders and making the world more diverse than ever before. The upsides of technology are clear, but what about the unwanted side-effects? This is an important question for you as our future technology leaders: the choices you will make in your future career can affect everyone’s daily lives.

How about the relationship between people and technology? Is technology enhancing human skills or competing with them? Has technology made us more creative, intelligent and engaged than a decade ago… or not?

We invite you to explore these questions at the Opening of the Academic Year 2017 on Monday 4 September 2017.
