Prof. Don McQuillan FIStructE, the 100th President of the Institution, reflects on the work of Past Presidents and the challenges facing the profession.

His message will focus on the climate emergency declared in 2019 and the shift in mind-set and behaviour required by engineers.

He will discuss the rate of change already being seen in the industry and how recent global tragedies have emphasised the importance of professional competency.

Don is a director of RPS, a global energy resources and environmental consultancy. He specialises in project managing multidisciplinary projects and in structural and forensic engineering.

He was first elected to Council in 1989 and has since been involved at HQ particularly with the development of The Structural Engineer, serving on the Editorial Advisory Group until recently.

He has authored many technical papers, some award winning. Don is also a RAE Visiting Professor at Queen’s University Belfast. He is passionate about mentoring younger engineers, providing technical support and guidance to members and promoting the Institution as the world leader in structural engineering.
