Global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon has announced its foray into podcasting with the release of Engineering Reimagined.
In it, Aurecon employees interview experts on topics that are “changing our world”.
The series will focus on people’s envisioning of the future, as well as their roles within it.
