Matt Byatt's Presidential address focused on the "The nature and nurture of a career in structural engineering".

Matt Byatt gave his first talk as the 102nd President of the Institution of Structural Engineers on 12 January 2023 at the Institution's International Headquarters

Matt talks about his journey to becoming a structural engineer, and how he would like to use his experience of this “unconventional route” to make it accessible for anyone with the appropriate aptitude to join the profession.
 
He also shares his passion for safety; climate; equality, diversity and inclusion; and mentoring.

 

Matt is a Co-Founder and Director at Subteno, a company built upon the simple premise of providing engineering solutions that are fully considered, inherently safe and considerate of the environment. Matt is responsible for the technical running of their South Norfolk office.

He is a consulting engineer with widespread experience across the commercial, retail, and industrial sectors in the UK, as well as specialising in brownfield modifications of offshore structures.

Matt has been actively involved with the Institution since the mid 1990’s serving on numerous panels and committees as well as being East Anglian Regional Group Chairman twice, serving on Council and the Board.

Matt progressed from becoming an Incorporated Engineer in 1995, to Chartered in 2005 and a Fellow in 2015. In 2014 he was presented with the Institution’s Lewis Kent Award.
