Earlier this month, Dr. Huining Xiao, chemical engineering professor at the University of New Brunswick was inducted into the Canadian Academy of Engineering. Dr. Xiao was one of 50 new Fellows inducted into the CAE, in Hamilton, Ont. on June 4.

Dr. Xiao’s research on multidisciplinary areas is unique and has allowed him to develop innovative technologies that are incredibly beneficial to industries. He has developed various functional polymers/nanoparticle systems that have addressed the issues related to industrial demands from a fundamental point of view and are also implementable and feasible for commercialization.

"Becoming a CAE fellow is not only an outstanding recognition of my personal achievements, but also recognition of the excellent engineering research performed at UNB,” said Dr. Xiao.

CAE President Pierre Lortie said, “We expect great achievements through their participation in the academy’s activities. In our past, fellows of the academy have produced major studies in the fields of education, energy and innovation; we look forward with boundless anticipation as to how these new fellows will build upon these good works and explore new exciting areas of engineering and its impact on public policy.”

Dr. Xiao says as one of the CAE Fellows, he will have opportunities to provide strategic help on the engineering issues that are of critical importance to Canada along with the nations most distinguished and experienced engineers.

Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering are committed to ensuring that Canada’s engineering expertise is applied to the benefit of all Canadians. Elected by their peers, fellows are recognized for their achievements and career-long service to the engineering profession. The CAE was established in 1987 and is an independent, self-governing and non-profit organization.

The CAE works in close collaboration with the members of the Canadian Engineering Leadership Forum, which brings together representatives from Engineers Canada. The CAE also works with several national engineering councils and associations with the shared goal of ensuring a safer, cleaner, healthier and more competitive Canada.
