Speech

The history of engineering is an ancient one, dating back far beyond written records; Construction and Mechanical being two of the oldest and most prolific.  The Institution of Mechanical Engineers has not been around as long as that; only 160 years, but in that time its members have contributed to some of the greatest engineering marvels ever seen; ships able to navigate the globe, supersonic aircraft, nuclear power generation and mass rail infrastructures to name but a few.

It is the Institution’s goal to ‘inspire the next generation’ and ensure that innovation, technology and manufacturing are at the forefront of the UK’s economic prosperity in the 21st century. This cannot be achieved without Education, which has always been the keystone to everything that engineers have designed and manufactured and it is this that continues to drive us forward into the future.

The Institution is therefore, delighted to endorse the Sir Frank Whittle Studio School and its aspiration to not only educate young engineers and technologists but encourage the business entrepreneurs of the future in this unique environment.  Today, you have an opportunity to be in that vanguard, to change your future and start on a path to an amazing profession.  I wish you the best of luck.
