Bernard Bewlay

Dr Bernard Bewlay (1980, Metallurgy & Science of Materials), Chief Scientist for Materials Systems and Services Technologies at General Electric (GE), was recently recognised by the company for his 150th patent issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in a recent ceremony in New York.

This prolific achievement places Bernard among the very elite in the history of GE innovators.

In the company’s 120-year existence, only a few dozen GE employees have achieved this momentous patent milestone, including notable inventors Ernst Alexanderson, Charles Steinmetz, and Thomas Edison, the founder of GE.

Bernard’s innovations are in a broad range of technologies for aircraft engines, power generation gas turbines, and medical imaging devices.

He is also the recipient of the 2018 Coolidge Award, the highest honour awarded to a scientist within GE.  Furthermore, Bernard is a Fellow of ASM International and a member of the Materials Research Society, TMS, and the Institute of Materials.

The Hall congratulates Bernard on this achievement.
