Dr Tom Gibson's impact on saving lives

GSBmE alum, Dr Tom Gibson is living proof of how an Engineering degree can make a real difference in society.

The PhD, multi-award winner and 19-year Managing Director at Human Impact Engineering (HIE) has used his knowledge and experience to help save lives.

“The areas where I feel I had a significant effect were related to the side-impact work and the protection systems that are now fitted to cars,” says Tom.

“There has since been a significant change in car design as result of the work I was involved with – a direct effect that saved quite a lot of lives.”
