At 2018 CDIO Asian Regional Meeting, Sioux Managing Director made his speech with the topic “Student Involvement in Making Smarter Cities”. 

“Smart cities are no longer the wave of the future. There are more and more communities getting integrated with technology innovation. As a result, those innovations have brought positive impacts to boost economic growth, efficiency, sustainability, and quality of life. A university is very much a part of the city it is in and its thousand students can play an important role to contribute to making smart and even smarter cities. This talk outlines a variety of opportunities the students can make this happen, in which the universities act as a bridge between the students and the cities”.



The conference was a success and a remarkable CDIO experience. It’s Sioux’s pleasure to have the chance of contributing to this prestigious conference.
