The National Academy of Engineering has elected 106 new members and 18 international members. There are four ASCE members among the new class.
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing and implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.” Founded in 1964, the NAE currently has 2,420 peer-elected members.
The new class will be formally inducted during the NAE’s annual meeting on Oct. 1.
