SISTech Director Paul Jowitt joins A-List guide to Britain's Who's Who
SISTech's Professor Paul Jowitt has been added to the latest edition of Who's Who, the illustrious guide to the richest, most famous and most influential people in Britain.
The professor of Civil Engineering Systems in the SBE is one of 67 Scots who have been added to the 33,000 strong-list.
They join the X Factor judge Simon Cowell, Oscar-winning film director Danny Boyle and hairdresser Vidal Sassoon in the £200 reference book.
Inclusion in the guide is by invitation only and it is a major accolade for everyone making their debut in the new edition.
Entrants are invited to compile their own entries, which can be as long or as concise as they wish. Professor Jowitt, 60, lists his recreations as: "Morgan cars, sculpture, painting, digging at the allotment (Dean Gallery allotments), making cider."
Other Scots include Andrew Flapan, consultant cardiologist at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, political commentator and broadcaster Iain Macwhirter, 58 and Ian Stewart, 50, editor of Scotland on Sunday, who lists "mostly worrying" as his only recreation
The first edition of Who's Who was published in 1849 as a 250-page volume - a tenth of the size of the 2011 edition. It is still considered a definitive reference book and is being made available online as well as in print.
Professor Jowitt is also Professor of Civil Engineering Systems at Heriot-Watt University and former President of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
