Ruxandra Botez, a Professor in the Systems Engineering Department at ÉTS, has been named a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, a world-renowned British organization that is devoted to promoting the highest possible standards in the aerospace industry.

The title of Fellow was conferred upon Professor Botez at the personal invitation of Professor Jonathan Cooper, President of the Royal Aeronautical Society. This honour is exceptionally offered to unique individuals who have made a particularly significant contribution to the aerospace industry, which is undeniably the case with Professor Botez.

Ruxandra Botez is an authority in the control of collapsible adaptive structures and aeroelastic optimization in aeronautics. Her reputation previously earned her the title of Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in 2017 and the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) in 2019. Since 2013, Professor Botez has chaired the CASI AERO Symposium of Aircraft Design and Development Technical Committee, and has been a member of the AIAA Adaptive Structures Committee since 2009. In 2020, she took on the role of Faculty Advisor for the student section of the AIAA at ÉTS, and has earned numerous other awards and distinctions over the course of her career.

Ruxandra Botez joined ÉTS in 1998, and in 2003, she founded the Research Laboratory in Active Controls, Avionics and Aeroservoelasticity (LARCASE), which she still heads. As holder of the Canada Research Chair for Aircraft Modeling and Simulation Technologies since 2011, she works closely with more than twenty companies and a number of international research institutes and universities. Professor Botez has trained dozens of researchers at ÉTS, and she and her team from LARCASE have published more than 450 specialized technical articles in the field of aeronautics.

ÉTS is proud of the honour and distinction that the Royal Aeronautical Society, which was founded in 1866 and now boasts some 22,500 members, has conferred upon this internationally recognized Professor and Researcher.
