Loughborough academic recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineering

From the Vice-Chancellor's Newsletter:

The very best research is recognised in many different ways. A Loughborough academic has been recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Professor Roy Kalawsky in the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering has been awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering / Airbus Chair as a result of his ground breaking research in digital and data engineering information systems. Academy chairs are awarded to world-leading academics who have a reputation for the very best research.

When I visited Professor Kalawsky’s lab at Holywell Park it reminded me of the bridge of the Starship Enterprise! Roy works in digital engineering, one of the most rapidly evolving areas of engineering research – indeed on our London campus we have a Digital Engineering and Test Centre (DETC), part of the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC).

Professor Kalawsky works in aerospace research. The UK is home to the second largest aerospace sector in the world. In common with other industrial sectors, the UK must maintain its competitive position by improving productivity and capability.  Roy’s work in digital engineering seeks to do this by reducing development timescales through improved engineering information.  Congratulations to Professor Roy Kalawsky on his outstanding achievements.
