The University of Nottingham’s Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (DVC) Professor Andy Long has been awarded a prestigious Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Professor Long has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in recognition of his outstanding and continuing contributions to the profession. He was formally admitted to the Academy at its AGM in London on Monday 30 September, and he will add his expertise to the Fellowship of nearly 1,600 eminent engineers from both industry and academia.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Engineering, Professor Sam Kingman said, “I am delighted that Andy’s research and leadership has been recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineering, the highest honour for any Engineer. This is a very proud day for the University of Nottingham, the Faculty of Engineering and for Andy personally.”

“I am thrilled to join the Fellowship and will continue to promote the work of our profession amongst esteemed colleagues and beyond. I’m honoured that my work has been recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineering and look forward to working together to further advance engineering for the benefit of society”, said Professor Andy Long.

Professor Long has studied and worked at the University since 1990. He leads on academic planning and resources across the University and supports the Vice-Chancellor in providing strategic leadership for the University.

He was previously Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the Faculty of Engineering, leading 800 staff across six departments with more than 4,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Professor Long has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Nottingham, which was awarded for work on process modelling for composites manufacture. Prior to this, he obtained a BSc in Applied Mathematics from Warwick University and an MSc in Computer Integrated Engineering from Loughborough University.

He has published around 360 papers including around 130 refereed journal papers, has co-authored/edited three textbooks on polymer composites, and has been principal investigator for research grants totalling around £33million.

In 2006, Andy was awarded the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining Rosenhain Medal in recognition of distinguished achievement in materials science, and in 2014 was inducted as a SAMPE Fellow for significant contributions in materials and process engineering technology.
