Election to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) is one of the highest professional honours accorded an engineer. Fellows have distinguished themselves in different sectors including business, academia and government and in different roles such as business management, executive management, technical, and university faculty. Fellow of the CAE are nominated and elected by their peers (current CAE Fellows) to honorary fellowship in the Academy in view of their distinguished achievements and career-long service to the engineering profession.
Individuals can not apply for fellowship in the CAE and, thus, there are no application forms for fellowship. The procedure for nomination and election of fellowship candidates begins with a search by present Fellows of the CAE for outstanding engineers. Candidates must be either a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident and have made substantial contributions to engineering in Canada, another country, or globally, with a significant impact on society including one or more of the following categories:
- Significant contributions to the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology or engineering knowledge.
- Significant contribution to the art and practice of engineering.
- Significant contributions to the development of organizations which are based on engineering knowledge.
