Prof. Ron Hui was elected as one of the finest engineers in Royal Academy of Engineering. In the day of Royal Academy of Engineering’s 40th annual general meeting, 50 of the UK’s finest engineers were elected as new Fellows.

The first meeting of the Fellowship of Engineering took place on 11 June 1976, when 130 leading engineers of the day including jet engine visionary Sir Frank Whittle, design guru Sir Ove Arup, and father of the UK computer industry Sir Maurice Wilkes were invited to Buckingham Palace by Senior Fellow HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Leading engineers have been elected to the Fellowship – later to become the Royal Academy of Engineering – every year since, and it now consists of around 1,500 engineers from across engineering disciplines in both industry and academia.
