By Mr John Stevenson(Senior Communications Officer), Published

Professor Nikola Stosic (Dipl Ing MSc DSc CEng FIMechE), City Professor in Positive Displacement Compressor Technology, is one of 72 new Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng)

700397Professor Stosic becomes one of 60 Fellows, seven International Fellows and five Honorary Fellows, each of whom has made exceptional contributions to their own sector, pioneering new innovations, leading progress in business or academia, providing high level advice to government, or promoting wider understanding of engineering and technology.

He is widely recognised as the world’s leading authority on twin-screw compressors and expanders.

His contribution to engineering has encompassed almost every aspect of their design and manufacture, as well as how they are used in the many industrial and commercial applications involving expansion and compression processes. Consequently, Professor Stosic’s work has made a significant impact on a wide range of industries.

Licensed software and global impact

His design software is licensed to 60 manufacturers and his novel rotor profiling has not only improved machine performance but also significantly extended the fields and range of applications for these machines, having helped more than 80 organisations in 27 countries.

This year’s new RAEng Fellows reflect the Academy’s ongoing Fellowship Fit for the Future initiative announced in July 2020, to drive more nominations of outstanding engineers from underrepresented groups ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2026. This initiative sees the Academy striving for increased representation from women, disabled and LGBTQ+ engineers, those from minority ethnic backgrounds, non-traditional education pathways and emerging industries, and those who have achieved excellence at an earlier career stage than normal.

The new Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at a special ceremony in London on 8th November 2022, when each Fellow will sign the roll book. In joining the Fellowship, they will add their unique capabilities to the Academy’s mission to harness the power of engineering to create a sustainable society and an inclusive economy for all.

Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the RAEng, says:

I am delighted to welcome such an array of enormously talented people to the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering. From industry and enterprise to education and government – both national and international – these are some of our most pioneering and distinguished engineers and technologists. In an uncertain world, one thing is certain – engineering skills, vision and leadership will play a crucial part in addressing the escalating domestic and global challenges that we face today. The combined connectivity, professionalism, experience and wisdom of the new Fellows who join us today will greatly enrich the expertise and support we can provide to the government and to society in general.
