Each year, up to 60 Fellows are typically elected to the Fellowship as well as up to 10 International and five Honorary Fellows, in recognition of their outstanding and continuing contributions to the profession. They are distinguished by the postnominals FREng and HonFREng respectively, and join a community of almost 1,700 eminent engineers on a mission to use the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and create an inclusive economy that works for everyone. New Fellows are nominated and elected by existing Fellows.
HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was our Senior Fellow, and instrumental in founding the Academy. HRH The Princess Royal and HRH The Duke of Kent are Royal Fellows.
