ICE-ing on the cake for ap­pren­tice Aaron

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.”
