China-America Frontiers of Engineering

In 2008, the China-America Frontiers of Engineering (CAFOE) program was initiated with the aim of bringing together outstanding, early-career Chinese and American engineers from industry, universities, and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to collaborative networks of engineers from the two countries.

NAE partners with the Chinese Academy of Engineering in this activity.  The total number of participants, including organizers, speakers, and other participants, numbers approximately 60, with 30 engineers from each country.  Participation is by invitation only.
