ICE Fellow Professor Sudhangsu Sekhar Chakraborty has been awarded the 2011 “Life-time Contributions Award in Engineering” by the Indian National Academy of Engineering.
The academy is a body of senior professional experts from engineering and technology.
Chakraborty was until recently senior ICE representative for Delhi.
He joins a list of high profile engineers who have previously won the prestigious award.
These include former Space Commission chairman Professor Satish Dhawan, and former India president, Dr Abdul Kalam.
“This is clearly a rare and most significant honour,” said ICE director general Tom Foulkes,
Chakraborty will be presented with his award at a ceremony on 23 December.
