The Future of Infrastructure

Like many industries, the designing, building, and maintaining of infrastructure has been changed by technology. Paper drawings are a thing of the past. Instead, designers are using virtual reality and mixed reality to bring their ideas to life. Manually inspecting infrastructure by putting on hard hats and climbing on ropes is becoming old school. Now, organizations are using digital twins—digital representations of physical assets, processes, or systems, as well as the engineering information that allows us to understand and model their performance—to continuously monitor infrastructure and know when it is time to fix and update them.

For years, studies have shown that people want careers that are meaningful and positively impact the world around them. Often, however, what holds them back is either a lack of proper training or the inability to break into these industries. Understanding what the latest trends are, and how to use that technology, is key to being ready to take that next step in your career.

That’s where we can help.
