Run by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the YEN is a network of regional centres that aim to provide a forum and support network for young engineers within CIBSE.

Luke, who has been involved with CIBSE YEN since 2016, said: “With 2018 being the Year of Engineering, I feel extremely honoured to take on the role of Chair for the Young Engineers Network and to be given the opportunity to promote building services engineering to schools and universities.

“Recently, Leeds has predominately been a building services hub within the Yorkshire region, particularly with CIBSE YEN, and with a skills shortage industry-wide, I’d like to help drive Sheffield’s YEN network to becoming an even more appealing region for building services engineers.”

Further to Luke’s role as Chair, he is also part of the CIBSE Inclusivity Panel, which aims to include more diversity in the profession.

The next Yorkshire Young Engineers Network meeting will take place on Thursday 17th May 2018 and the topic will be: The Performance Gap – designing for performance, to attend, register here.
