Professor David Andrews enters Hall of Fame as Pioneer of Naval Ship Design

Hot on the heels of winning the prestigious Froude Medal from the Royal Institute of Naval Architecture (RINA), Professor David Andrews (FREng, PhD, FRINA, FIMechE, FRSA ) has been declared “a pioneer of naval ship design” by the journal Ships and Offshore Structures.

UCL Mechanical Engineering’s Professor of Engineering Design recently entered into the journal’s “Hall of Fame”, named in an elite group of maritime luminaries, including William Froude, for whom RINA’s highest honour in naval architecture is named.

Professor Andrews, a UCL alumnus and an acknowledged international authority on ship design practice and methodology, is a stalwart of the UCL’s marine research group, having returned to UCL as a professor of naval architecture, after a distinguished career in the UK’s Ministry of Defence.

Highlights of Andrews’ illustrious and extensive career in ship design and naval architecture include being responsible for the first Trimaran ship build and submitting plans for a new royal yacht to former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the British Royal Family.
