The Edinburgh academics are among 50 new Fellows elected to the Academy on Tuesday 5 September.

They join a Fellowship of 1,500 world-leading engineers from industry and academia.

The Royal Academy of Engineers is the UK’s national academy for engineering.

It brings together the most successful and talented engineers to advance and promote excellence in engineering.

The Academy also works to improve public awareness and understanding of engineering.

"Since 130 engineers were first called together in 1976 to form the Fellowship of Engineering, our Fellows have come together to advance and promote excellence in engineering. I’m so proud to welcome our new Fellows, who represent the very best of UK engineering. From technology giants to our universities’ finest minds, our new Fellows demonstrate how engineering is tackling some of the biggest challenges facing the world. I look forward to working with them as we continue to make the UK a leading nation for engineering innovation and businesses."
