Nick Higham elected as Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering


Congratulations to Nick Higham, Royal Society Research Professor and Richardson Professor of Applied Mathematics, who was recently elected as one of 72 new Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

At its AGM on 20 September 2022 the Royal Academy elected 72 leading figures in the field of engineering and technology to its Fellowship, saying "each of [them] 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." 

Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said “I am delighted to welcome such an array of enormously talented people to the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering. From industry and enterprise to education and government – both national and international – these are some of our most pioneering and distinguished engineers and technologists. 

“In an uncertain world, one thing is certain – engineering skills, vision and leadership will play a crucial part in addressing the escalating domestic and global challenges that we face today. The combined connectivity, professionalism, experience and wisdom of the new Fellows who join us today will greatly enrich the expertise and support we can provide to the government and to society in general.” 

Along with the other new Fellows, Nick will be formally admitted to the Academy at a special ceremony in London on 8 November, when each new Fellow will sign the roll book.
