LVV Director Prof. Keith Worden elected as a Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow
At its AGM on 19 September 2023 the Royal Academy of Engineering elected 73 leading figures in the field of engineering and technology to its Fellowship. 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.
Amongst the newly elected fellows was the LVV's Director Prof. Keith Worden. Professor Worden is a world-leading authority in structural dynamics, notably in the areas of nonlinear dynamics and structural health monitoring. In particular, he is one of the pioneers of data-based health monitoring, and has developed methodologies that are used worldwide, in industry and in academia.
The new Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at a special ceremony in London on 28 November, when each Fellow will sign the roll book. In joining the Fellowship, they will lend their unique capabilities to achieving the Academy’s overarching strategic goal to harness the power of engineering to create a sustainable society and an inclusive economy for all.
Professor Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, says:
“Engineering is everywhere, but nowhere the same, and our new Fellows represent the great breadth and diversity of engineers who are striving to address some of the world’s most complex challenges – benefiting society and the economy in the process. From next generation power networks and water systems to quantum computing and artificial intelligence, our new Fellows are shaping the future.
“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.”
