Election to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) is one of the highest professional honours accorded to an engineer.

Members of the CAE are nominated and elected by their peers (current CAE members) to honorary Fellowship in the Academy in view of their distinguished achievements and career-long service to the engineering profession.

On June 20, Civil Engineering professor Slobodan Simonovic joined the accomplished list of CAE Fellows at the induction ceremony in Montreal, QC.

Simonovic received this recognition for his seminal contributions to the development of systems engineering approaches for the planning, designing and managing of complex water resources systems in the search for sustainable and robust physical and societal solutions, based on stakeholders’ value systems and ethical principles. He has utilized probabilistic and fuzzy simulation and optimization for addressing subjective and objective uncertainties in managing water resources systems.

Moreover, Simonovic has contributed to the solution of complex reservoir operations problems; developed effective flood management measures; improved assessment of climate change impacts on local scales; and developed decision support for integrated water resources management. He is also a Fellow of CSCE, ASCE and IWRA.
