“I commend the Association for Black Engineers UK (AFBE-UK) for its tireless efforts to promote the engineering profession, especially to young people of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds in the UK. This work is an excellent example of encouraging partnership between stakeholders in the engineering communities and supporting young people as they embark on a range of exciting career paths in science and technology.”Vince Cable MP, Business Secretary (2012)
