The Royal Academy of Engineering is delighted to announce the election of 59 new Fellows at the AGM held on Monday 16 July 2012. They include 52 of the UK’s most accomplished engineers from industry, business and academia; four new International Fellows and three Honorary Fellows.
Sir John Parker GBE FREng, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said:
“We welcome our new Fellows: the collective expertise and vision of the best engineers is what drives our ambitious agenda and makes so many good things possible. We are making progress in our aim to encourage a broader-based Fellowship that is more representative of the society we serve. But we cannot afford to be complacent and are continually reviewing our membership strategy to see how we might strengthen it.”
