"The future is what you make it. So make it a good one." - Doc Brown, Back to the Future

This year at Tech Day we will be looking to the future of the university experience. Big data and artificial intelligence sound like science fiction but they are today’s reality. Join us and meet some of the thinkers and practitioners who are making these technologies accessible in your classroom, research, and beyond. We have some ideas but we need your input to make them real. Join us to meet some of our new partners and experience the future today.
