Tragically, Tsz Fok was killed in a road accident on April 18.
Tsz's family have agreed that the Royal Academy of Engineering
can circulate the booklet to schools and colleges as planned.
This will form part of Tsz's legacy and should encourage more
young people to become engineers, just as he'd hoped.


Best wishes,

Nick Pope
