The Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) President, Andrew Wyllie CBE, on a visit to the recently opened Integrated Civil and Infrastructure Research (ICAIR) Centre in Sheffield, where he met with sixth formers, graduates and students taking part in a #transport #infrastructure breakfast.
“It is great to engage with young people, as they are the future of the industry, and to do so in a state-of-the-art facility is fantastic. It is often easy to forget that civil engineering is essential to day-to-day life. Watching these young people experiment with something as vital to modern society as sewerage or drinking water, and to understand the role civil engineering plays in that is wonderful. They were truly engaged and inspired.”
Wyllie also joined Harry Gration MBE, of BBC Look North, to take part in a future of transport panel event at the University of Sheffield, where they presented their ideas on the city could thrive as a #NorthernPowerhouse.
