He has been a member of the IMechE since 1979, is an Honorary Professorial Fellow in the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, and has been a long-time volunteer in the Institution, having served on both the Trustee Board and the Council.

Professor McGeough said: “I am delighted to be appointed as president of the Institution.

“During my year in office, I want to concentrate on developing professional engineers and ensuring that the broadest possible range of people have a chance to experience all the fantastic opportunities that my career in engineering has been able to offer me.

“There has never been a better time to be an engineer, and I look forward to working to ensure that our Institution continues to deliver on our vision of ‘improving the world through engineering’.”

He began his career as an undergraduate engineering apprentice and worked in teaching positions at several universities, before moving to the University of Edinburgh in 1983.

In his inaugural lecture, the new president highlighted the career of Edinburgh-born Theo Williamson, “one of the
most creative manufacturing engineers of the second part of the 20th century.

“Williamson was an inspiration, as he succeeded in having a highly influential career despite the earlier part of his life being marred by life-threatening illness, failure and rejection.

“He is a shining example of those qualities that best capture the essence of what it is to be an engineer: creativity, problem-solving and the need for perseverance.”
