Eur Ing Andrew C Fieldsend CEng FBCS CITP
I was encouraged to join the BCS by my first employer, becoming a member in 1988, a Chartered Engineer and European Engineer in 1993 and a fellow in 2008. After being an inactive member for some years due to work commitments, I joined the Berkshire committee in 2002, becoming Secretary in 2003, Chair from 2004-2010 and Secretary again from 2015 onwards. Outside the BCS, I am also a fellow of the IAP and member of the ACM and IEEE, where I am active in the Standards Association.
I originally graduated in Computational Science from the University of Leeds, and subsequently gained a postgraduate diploma in computing for commerce and industry from the Open University. I have had a variety of experience in my career to date, including software development, system operations and support, project management and a period as a self-employed consultant. I am now a consultant for Fruition Partners, a CSC subsidiary based in Bracknell focused on service management.
