Joe has used opportunities at University to explore and develop himself – a love for playing water polo with friends turned into a committee position which turned into him leading the committee. Here he developed his leadership and management skills while completing his final year in tandem. Currently, he is working toward Chartership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE), is in the process of becoming a STEM Ambassador, and is a part of the New Professionals Forum who are bringing this talk to you.
