    Question A usage of Fellow?

    Hi,
    I am asking about a usage of word "fellow", can it come with "in"? Like:
    John's now title is:"Fellow in hardware group"
    .
    Best Regards,
    Ahmed

    See my amendment above.

    The use of "fellow" in that sentence is not natural. "Fellow" is an informal, old-fashioned name for a man or it's a member of a specific group of academics. See HERE.

    By "hardware group", did you mean the "hardware department" of a company? If so, the person would have an official job title.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, I mean the "hardware department" of a company. So this is not valid official title?

    I would not use it in that context.
