Ruminations on the electronics industry from David Manners, Senior Components Editor on Electronics Weekly.
Back Tangible Technology Not Web Fads, says Dyson
The government should be backing ‘tangible technology’ rather than ‘web fads’ like internet projects and games development, says Sir James Dyson.
“There seems to be an obsession with Shoreditch’s so-called ‘Silicon roundabout’,” says Dyson.
Dyson slams paltry salaries for post-graduate research, calling 7k salaries ‘insulting’ and suggesting that engineering post grads should be paid 30k to incentivise them to engage in research.
Dyson says the government must recommit itself to engineering and science education and seek to create clusters of engineering SMEs.
Britain must have the world’s brightest engineers, says Dyson.Tags: games development, grads, obsession, post graduate, science education
