TWI Senior Project Leader, Binyan He has been elected as a Member of The Welding Institute. The election committee also approved Binyan’s registration as a Chartered Engineer. This means that she can now also carry the designatory letters CEng and MWeldI after her name.
As a Member of The Welding Institute, Binyan has become part of the leading international membership body for welding and joining professionals. The Institute is also unique in its ties to certification, training and TWI’s research and technology arm.
Speaking on her achievement, Binyan said, “I thank The Welding Institute and the Engineering Council for this and I am also grateful that TWI has actively supported me in achieving this recognition. Being successfully registered as a Chartered Engineer has proven my competence in solving complex engineering problems with managerial and professional skills. It has given me the confidence and motivation to keep progressing with my personal and professional development.”
Binyan joined TWI’s fatigue integrity management team in 2018. She completed her PhD on fatigue crack growth behaviour in a shot peened low pressure steam turbine blade material at the University of Southampton in 2015. After her PhD, she worked as a Research Associate at the Open University in the characterisation of electropulse-induced microstructure regeneration of stainless steels. Then she worked as a Research Engineer in the R&D centre of Vesuvius UK Ltd before becoming a Research Fellow at Brunel University, London.
This is a fine example of how TWI works to develop and encourage staff in their careers, while also demonstrating the expertise that we can draw upon to serve the needs of our Industrial Members.
We would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Binyan on her chartered engineer status and Institute membership.
