University academic joins Royal Academy of Engineering

Professor Bucur-Mircea Novac, Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The Royal Academy of Engineering welcomed 50 of the UK’s finest engineers as new Fellows at its 40th annual general meeting which took place last week (8 September).

Renowned engineers from across the country are elected to the Academy in recognition of their outstanding and continuing contributions to the profession.

On his award, Professor Novac commented: “Working with inspiring colleagues at Loughborough for more than 20 years has been key to my successful research contribution. The area of pulsed electrical power has been a great experience and has brought me into direct contact with many leading researchers in the same area throughout the world.

It is a great honour to receive the accolade of FREng, which gives added credence to the genuine international quality of the engineering research undertaken at Loughborough University. I could not let this opportunity slip without thanking Professor Ivor Smith both for his unstinting support throughout my time at Loughborough and for proposing me for this award.”
