“Dr Feilden played a crucial role in the development of Alstom Power and was instrumental in the development of the gas turbine for use in aircraft propulsion and industrial production,” said a university spokesman..
“The university has strong links with Alstom Power, who were strong supporters of the project to create a university in Lincoln in the 1990s. Our atrium in the main academic building is named after the company and Alstom’s former managing director, Kelvin Bray CBE, is chairman of our Board of Governors.
“For these reasons we are delighted to be able to honour Dr Feilden, an engineer of high repute whose work has benefited the city of Lincoln in innumerable ways.”
