Sir Patrick Stewart OBE
Actor, director and producer Sir Patrick Stewart’s work has included roles on stage, television and film, in a career spanning seven decades.
In receiving his accolade, Sir Patrick said: “I am truly grateful to have been named an Honorary Fellow of the IET. I’ve been very honoured to have had a career in film and TV, which has exposed young people to highly creative ideas, innovative products, and technological advances.
It’s also fantastic to know that my work has excited young people about the wonderful possibilities offered by a career in science and engineering. Engineers make an outstanding contribution to our world, and they will help shape our future and so I am particularly delighted to receive this Honorary Fellowship from the IET.”
