Electrotechnology IRC Chair Larry Moore:

“In the next 10 years our industry will change significantly, going from electrical control to internet control through the Internet of Things and connectivity and all those new areas that are coming into play. 

An interesting career path in our industry is going from a trade, right through to an Engineering degree, which many in industry believe often become the best engineers at the end of the day.”
