Rebecca Lingwood appointed Vice-Principal at Queen Mary University of London
Dr Rebecca Lingwood is set to leave ICE in September after six years as Director of Continuing Education, to take up a prestigious new post as Vice-Principal for Student Experience, Teaching and Learning at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
Rebecca will be responsible for supporting and developing the educational provision at QMUL and will also contribute more broadly to the academic leadership of the university. In addition, she will take up an academic post in QMUL's School of Engineering and Materials Science, where she will hold the title of Professor of Fluid Dynamics.
A new Director of Continuing Education here at ICE will be in post in early 2016 and Professor Sir Mike Gregory, retiring Head of Cambridge's Institute for Manufacturing, will serve as Acting Head of ICE in the interim.
In keeping with ICE tradition, a portrait of Dr Lingwood (pictured), painted by local artist Heloise Toop, will hang in Madingley Hall to commemorate her time here.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Rebecca for her inspirational and dynamic leadership, and wish her all the best in her exciting new role!
