The new President of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) will use her year-long term of office to champion engineering difference makers in a bid to get more young people interested in engineering and technology.
Danielle George MBE, who is Professor of radio frequency engineering in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Associate Vice President at the University of Manchester, became the 139th President of the IET at the beginning of October this year.
The #DifferenceMakers campaign aims to find those who are using engineering and technology solutions to solve a variety of global challenges.
Danielle said: “It’s no secret that there is a shortage of engineers in the UK, so it’s vital we have more young people considering engineering and technology careers to ensure the future pipeline of talent. As engineers, it’s our duty to speak passionately about our careers so that more people join us and have the chance to change the world.”
