Ottawa – (26 June 2017) – President Douglas Ruth inducted 50 new Fellows and two new International Fellows into the Canadian Academy of Engineering on 26 June 2017. The ceremony took place in Ottawa, in conjunction with the Academy’s 2017 Annual General Meeting and Symposium. Dr. Ruth commented: “We welcome the new Fellows, who are all engineers of outstanding abilities. While they have widely varying backgrounds, what they all have in common is the demonstrated ability to go beyond the normal practice of engineering and contribute in exemplary ways towards their fields and to their communities. We expect great achievements through their participation in the Academy’s activities. In our past, Fellows of the Academy have produced major studies in the fields of education, energy and innovation; we look forward as to how these new Fellows will explore new and exciting areas of engineering and their impact on public policy.” Citations and photographs for each of the new inductees follow.
