Eighty-one highly accomplished early-career engineers have been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering 2023 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 Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering symposium helps foster a collaborative spirit in early-career engineers by bringing together a diverse group from different technical areas and work sectors to spark innovation, broaden perspectives on new approaches to engineering problems, and develop long-term relationships that are critical in advancing engineering efforts that are critical to our nation’s future,” said NAE President John L. Anderson.
The symposium will explore four themes:
“The ability to envision what is not yet possible, to create solutions to today’s problems that benefit all of society in the future, and to be open, inclusive, and diverse in our thinking and the abilities of ourselves and others — these are the hallmarks of outstanding engineers,” Anderson said. “The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering symposium opens the door for collaborative efforts across all engineering disciplines and, in doing so, helps build engineer leaders.
Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 5,000 early-career engineers have participated in previous symposia, many of whom have gone on to become national leaders in the engineering community, Anderson added.
