IOM3 is delighted that five of our distinguished members have been elected Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering

Congratulations to the following Fellows of IOM3 who were among 69 figures in the field of engineering and technology admitted to Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) at its AGM on 22 September: 

Neil Glover FREng CEng FIMMM, Head of Materials Research, Rolls-Royce plc and current President of IOM3

Professor Peter Haynes FREng CEng CSci FIMMM, Professor of Theory & Simulation of Materials and Head of Department of Materials, Imperial College London

Professor Sam Kingman FREng CEng FIMMM, Pro Vice Chancellor, Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham

Professor Rachel Oliver FREng CEng FIMMM, Professor of Materials Science, University of Cambridge

Alfonso Hing Wan Ngan FREng CEng CSci FIMMM, Kingboard Endowed Professor in Materials Engineering, University of Hong Kong (HKU)

IOM3 CEO Dr Colin Church FIMMM CEnv says, 'It is always inspiring to see IOM3 members elected as Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering, but this year it is doubly special as our President, Neil Glover, is one of those who are being recognised.'

This year’s new Fellows are the first to reflect the Academy’s 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. Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, says 'The engineering profession has long suffered from a diversity shortfall and the Academy is committed to changing that, including by ensuring that our own Fellowship community is as inclusive as it can be. It is well established that diverse organisations tend to be more agile and more innovative, and as the UK’s National Academy for engineering and technology, we have a responsibility to reflect the society we serve in addressing the shared challenges of our future.'
