The Royal Academy of Engineering elected 73 leading figures in the field of engineering and technology to Fellowship on 20 September 2023.


The group consists of 60 Fellows, eight International Fellows and five Honorary Fellows, each of whom has made exceptional contributions to their own sector, pioneering new innovations, leading progress in business or academia, providing high level advice to government, or promoting wider understanding of engineering and technology.

IOM3 is proud to confirm the below members were honoured:

  • Prof Ruth Cameron CEng FIMMM
    Head (Joint), Department of Materials Science, University of Cambridge 
  • Prof Michael Clinch CEng FIMMM
    Senior Consultant and Materials Group Leader, Innoval Technology 
  • Prof Vikram Deshpande FIMMM

Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said, ‘We live in an era of rapid change across our communities, our country, and of course our planet. Today we welcome to our Fellowship an inspiring group of people who are harnessing their creativity, courage and commitment to drive positive change in the world around us and we look forward to their contribution to our work’.

This year’s new Fellows reflect the Academy’s ongoing Fellowship Fit for the Future initiative announced in July 2020, to drive more nominations of outstanding engineers from underrepresented groups ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2026. The initiative sees the Academy striving for increased representation from women, disabled and LGBTQ+ engineers, those from minority ethnic backgrounds, non-traditional education pathways and emerging industries.
