Eighty-three of the nation's brightest young engineers have been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) 20th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) 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 2 1/2 day event. The participants -- from industry, academia, and government -- were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations and chosen from almost 300 applicants.

 

The 2014 USFOE will be held on September 11-13, at the National Academies' Beckman Center in Irvine, Calif., and will cover cutting-edge developments in four areas: next-generation robotics, frontiers in materials for batteries, shale gas and oil, and technologies for the heart.

 

“The USFOE symposium is the perfect network for these talented, early-career engineers to develop those personal and professional relationships that will shape their work and ultimately impact our world,” said NAE President C. D. Mote, Jr.
