Incoming ICE President, Richard Coackley, has chosen six young engineers to be his apprentices throughout his presidential term.
The apprentices will have the opportunity to observe how a senior figure in the industry operates, learn new skills and gain a better understanding of the ICE.
Each will have individual and group mentoring sessions with Coackley and be involved in his initiatives throughout the year. They will also attend major influencing events or meetings with figures such as senior civil servants or ministers and work with ICE members in their region.
Coackley takes over from Peter Hansford in November. He said he was confident he had selected “six energetic and inspiring young engineers”.
“I’m looking forward to hearing their views on the challenges facing the world today and how we, as engineers, can help with finding the solutions.” he said.
The apprentices are Kieren Couch, Angela Crowther, Sebastian John, Caroline Traynor, Lydia Walpole, and Yan Zhou.
