They could follow in the footsteps of Tim Berners Lee, Bill Gates, Vint Cerf, and Grace Hopper by receiving Distinguished Fellowship of BCS.
Over 30 digital masterminds hold this prestigious title for their contribution to IT. What’s most potent about all of them is that they’ve used their foresight to pursue developments that benefit our society.
We’re able to officially recognise and thank them for their ingenuity thanks to our royal charter.
