The grade of Fellow is the Institute’s highest grade of membership and is reserved for senior civil engineers who have made a significant contribution to the profession.

The ceremony took place at the London headquarters of the Institution, recognised as the home of civil engineering since 1818.

In his address, Barry Clarke the President of the Institution spoke about the role education plays in preparing the civil engineers of tomorrow by inspiring the next generation, encouraging innovation and informing society’s decision making.

Martyn said: “I feel greatly honored and humbled by being made a Fellow. This is a culmination of many years’ hard work and experience in a profession that I have always found inspiring and rewarding.

“The Institution puts great store on the development of next generation of civil engineers, so I feel especially pleased to be playing my part at the University of Bath which educates the future civil engineers, not just for the UK but across the world.”
