ICE-ing on the cake for apprentice Aaron
AARON Matthew, a civil engineer from West Drayton, has won a prestigious position as the next apprentice to Sir John Armitt.
The prestigious role enables Aaron to work closely with Sir John, former Chairman of the Olympic Delivery, when he becomes President of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) on Wednesday, November 4.
The new apprentice, 24, fell in love with architecture at high school in Italy. He completed a masters in architectural engineering at Cardiff University and returned to West Drayton in 2014 as a design engineer at Heathrow, followed by Transport for London.
Aaron, along with his fellow apprentices, will attend ICE events, meet senior industry people and join Sir John on regional visits.
He will also assist Sir John in developing the institute’s ‘This is Civil Engineering’ public awareness campaign.
Speaking about his appointment, Aaron said: “I can’t wait to see the impact that engineers can make on the government. The ICE has been my window to learn, see and experience the vast world of engineering.”
Suzanne Moroney, ICE London director, said: “Being appointed a President’s Apprentice is a fantastic opportunity and a huge achievement. Congratulations to Aaron.”
