This event is a presentation of the incoming presidential address by Professor Jeremy Watson, direct from Savoy Place.
Engineers are activists for creativity and champions of novelty and innovation. They have essential links with other fields, most obviously the sciences, architecture and design.
The IET is differentiating itself by providing a broad interdisciplinary backbone of knowledge, services and activities, whilst recognising that specialist engineering themes require more support than ever before.
The incoming IET President, Professor Jeremy Watson, will use his own career to illustrate the benefit of ‘synergistic development’ through his roles in industry, government and universities. He will show how experience in one sector can provide value in another and suggest how professional development can support this vision.
In his presidential address, Jeremy will present the case for interdisciplinary and inclusive approaches to education, professional engineering support and career development. He will explore the learning, knowledge and networking needs of engineers from a variety of sectors and backgrounds – and explain how the IET is working to serve them.
Start time: 6.30pm.
All welcome. Refreshments will be available before the start of the event.
