Professor Jin Wang from the Faculty of Engineering and Technology has recently won the following prestigious awards:
- Outstanding Contribution to Marine Safety award for 2017 from the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST)
- 2017 Royal Institution of Naval Architecture (RINA) – Lloyd’s Register Maritime Safety Award for Lifetime Achievement for improvement of the safety of life at sea and the protection of the maritime environment through novel and improved design, construction and operational procedures
The IMarEST’ award recognises the achievement of engineers, scientists and technologists in improving safety at sea. Each year the award is given to a member of the global marine community whose achievements are judged by a panel of senior IMarEST members and approved by the IMarEST Professional Affairs and Education Committee and, in turn, the IMarEST Board of Trustees. Professor Wang received his award in IMarEST’s 115th Dinner at London Guildhall on 16 March 2018.
The Maritime Safety Award for Lifetime Achievement was presented to Professor Wang, by RINA in association with Lloyd’s Register, to recognise his significant technological contribution to improving maritime safety or the protection of the maritime environment. Such contribution has been made either by a specific activity or over a period of time. Each year one award is given to a member of the global maritime community whose achievements are judged by a panel of members of RINA and Lloyd’s Register.
Prof. Jin Wang has recently been appointed as a sub-panel (criteria phase, Unit of Assessment 12 Engineering) member in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 following his service as a sub-panel member in REF 2014.
