Born to Engineer star Eleanor Stride joined 53 others, from robotics to other nano-drug experts, to become one of this year’s new Royal Academy of Engineering fellows.
Professor Stride said that it was an honour after RAEng had “a transformative effect” on her early career and that she owed a “huge amount” to the Academy for supporting her early research.
I hope that through [the fellowship] I can support the next generation of new engineers … I think one of the most important things we can do to encourage future engineers is to advertise the huge breadth of applications with which engineers are involved and the positive impact that they have.Eleanor Stride, professor of engineering science at the University of Oxford
