CAE President Eddy Isaacs inducted a total of 57 new Fellows and two new International Fellows into the academy during its annual general meeting and symposium held in Calgary.
“The new fellows are engineers of outstanding abilities and of widely varying backgrounds, from industry and academe and government,” said Isaacs during the ceremony. “What they all have in common is the demonstrated desire and ability to go beyond the normal practice of engineering and contribute in exemplary ways towards their fields and to their communities.
Founded in 1987, the CAE is the national institution through which Canada's most distinguished and experienced engineers provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance to Canada.
