Our faculty are internationally recognized experts in a wide range of engineering disciplines, as evidenced by their elevation to Fellow status in leading professional societies. Collectively, they are among the top minds in the field of engineering today.

What does it mean to be designated a Fellow?

Fellows of professional societies are established in their careers (usually 10 years or more), and must be members of the society. They are elevated to Fellow status through a nomination process, and the designation is in recognition of their distinguished contributions to the field, such as through publications, applied research, teaching, contribution to public awareness, leadership of professional organizations, and taking on editorial responsibilities.
