Eighty-three of the nation’s brightest early-career engineers have been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 27th annual US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) symposium. Engineers who are performing exceptional research and technical work in a variety of disciplines will come together for the two-and-a-half day event. The participants — from industry, academia, and government — were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations.
The 2021 USFOE will be held September 22-24 at the National Academies’ Beckman Center in Irvine, California.
The symposium will explore four themes:
“This past year has taught us how important engineering collaboration is in solving some of the world’s most difficult problems,” said NAE President John L. Anderson. “The USFOE symposium helps foster this collaborative spirit in young engineers by bringing a diverse group together from different technical areas and work sectors to spark innovation and develop long-term relationships that are critical in advancing our nation’s future.”
