IET Faraday Medal
The IET Faraday Medal was established to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first Ordinary Meeting of the Society of Telegraph Engineers.
Find out about the award.
Continuing a tradition that began in 1871 when the Society of Telegraph Engineer‘s first President, Charles William Siemens, gave the inaugural speech, the President’s Address remains the first official responsibility of the incoming IET President when taking on the post in October of each year.
Barry Brooks, the new President of the IET, will use his Inaugural Lecture at the world-renowned Royal Institution building to remind us of some of the many engineers who have been the leaders and innovators who have made a difference to the world, and how their example needs to be followed by today’s engineers and technicians.
