“There are no areas of global progress today that do not fundamentally involve Engineering and Science, whether we are looking at means to improve crop yields, to create clean energy, or to further explore our solar system, Engineers and Scientists are the people who make the impossible become a reality.
“We only need to look at the accelerated rate of technological progress in the last few years that has transformed global communications from allowing us to watch live video streamed news on our mobile devices to permitting a remote farmer being able to access up-to-date market prices for his crops to see that technology is transforming every corner and aspect of our world.
“In Aerogen’s field of life-science the progress made possible by Engineers and Scientists is truly staggering. In technology X-Ray , Ultrasound, MRI , Mammography, Organ Transplant, in pharmaceutics Penicillin , Aspirin, Vaccines, Insulin, Statins, Gene therapy, in devices Dialysis, Artificial Heart, Angioplasty, Lens Implants , Robotic Surgery… and so it goes on year after year, innovation after innovation.
“The common theme of all these game changers in clinical practice was the need for individuals and teams with the vision, creativity, technical rigour and dedication to push the boundaries, seek the solutions and make the impossible a reality. Engineering or Science, I really cannot think of more rewarding careers for any young person today. “
