Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional honors an engineer can achieve.
Four technical leaders who have been affiliated with the Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) at Stanford University are among the newly elected National Academy of Engineering (NAE) members, the NAE announced on February 7, 2013.
"We have been extremely fortunate to have leaders of this caliber working with GCEP," said Sally M. Benson, the director of GCEP. "Election to the NAE is one of the absolute highest professional distinctions bestowed upon an engineer."
According to the NAE, its 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/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."
The four newly elected NAE members include GCEP principal investigators and two executives from ExxonMobil, one of the companies that has sponsored GCEP since its launch in 2002.
The NAE elected 69 new members and 11 foreign associates in 2013. This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,250 and the number of foreign associates to 211.February 7, 2013
