Professor Dame Ann Dowling makes BBC R4 Woman's Hour Power List 2013

last modified Mar 06, 2013 11:36 AM

Congratulations to our Head of Department Professor Dame Ann Dowling FREng for making the BBC Woman's Hour Power List 2013

Professor Dowling made headlines in 1993 when she was appointed the first female Professor in the Department of Engineering. In 2002 she was recognised in the Queen's Birthday honours, receiving the Commander of the British Empire medal (CBE) for services to Mechanical Engineering, and again in the 2007 in the New Year's Honours List when she received a DBE (Dame of the British Empire) for services to science. More recently in 2011 she was awarded a UKRC award for her 'Inspiration and Leadership in Academic and Research'.

The BBC Radio 4's list consisted of the top 100 most powerful women in the UK today. Listeners of the show and members of the public were allowed to suggest women who they believed were most powerful in the UK today. For example top female politicians, business women and leaders in a range of fields. The top 100 list was then chosen and ranked from a panel of judges: Eve Pollard, Jill Burridge, Oona King, Val McDermid, Dawn O'Porter and Priti Patel.
