The director of an award-winning restaurant chain and an inspirational figure for women’s engineering were the latest people to gain an honorary fellowship of Bradford College yesterday.
Mohammed Aslam MBE, the Shipley-based Aagrah Group’s executive head chef and managing director, and Dr Phebe Mann, the first and only woman to hold five professional engineering qualifications concurrently in the UK, were the last of the college’s six honorary fellows to be honoured, along with hundreds of graduates from the college at a ceremony at St George’s Hall.
Mr Aslam is widely acknowledged as the person responsible for establishing Kashmiri cuisine in Britain, and his restaurants have won numerous awards. Dr Mann has a long list of qualifications.
She is a Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng MICE), Chartered Surveyor (MRICS), Chartered Builder (MCIOB), Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb) and European Engineer (Eur Ing). She has worked hard to show women that they can have important roles in engineering.
