ETA 2020 Webinar: In Conversation with George Lamb, Engineering Student Nominee
George is a graduating Aerospace Engineering student from The University of Manchester. Discovering and playing in the ‘space corner’ at his playgroup as a child and learning about the awe-inspiring Apollo programme developed his passion for all things space and aviation related. Having grown up in Manchester and progressing through state-education, he has rose to success at the University and has since committed to giving back to the community through founding The Engineering: Volunteering & Outreach Society (EVO), which aims to inspire the next generation of engineers. His dissertation introduces a pioneering novel aerodynamic stall detection system inspired by recent aviation accidents. George’s career goals are to progress to the space industry where he wishes to become a leader in the industry, inspire the next generation of engineers and make a positive difference to humanity through the utilisation of space.
