During their fall in-person conference, SAEA leaders presented developments in the application of robotics in advanced building construction. They aim to further Syrian-American presence in this up-and-coming field.
SAEA hopes to encourage young Syrian-Americans to study and engage in the robotics field as a profession, and endorse scholarships and sponsorships for promising, young people to enter and stay in this field.
The engineers discussed the continuing implementation of robotics into the engineering, manufacturing, and construction spaces–a labor shortage in the construction space means many manufacturers and construction contractors are looking to robotics instead to automate and future-proof their operations with an eye toward cost-effectiveness and increased quality in terms of accuracy and precision.
Proven during the COVID years, the presentation reviewed many potential uses for robotics in engineering and the services industry, including automatically guided vehicles in a manufacturing warehouse, or an automated surveyor of construction sites.
