NAE'S 2009 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
August 10, 2009

Eighty-eight of the nation’s brightest young engineers have been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 15th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium. Engineers ages 30 to 45 who are performing exceptional engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines will come together for the event. The participants – from industry, academia, and government – were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations and chosen from approximately 240 applicants.

The symposium will be held September 10th-12th at the National Academies’ Beckman Center at the University of California, Irvine, and will examine engineering tools for scientific discovery; engineering the health care delivery system; nano/micro photonics and new applications; and resilient and sustainable infrastructures. A featured speaker will be Bradford W. Parkinson, Edward C. Wells Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics Emeritus at Stanford University. Mr. Parkinson is credited with being the father of the Global Positioning System and is a recipient of the prestigious Draper Prize and a member of the NAE.
