This volume includes papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 2002 US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium held in September 2002. USFOE meetings bring together 100 outstanding engineers (ages 30 to 45) to exchange information about leading-edge technologies in a range of engineering fields. The 2002 symposium covered four topic areas: Chemical and molecular engineering in the 21st century, Technology for human beings, The Future of nuclear energy, and Engineering challenges for quantum information technology.  Appendixes include information about contributors, the symposium program, and a list of meeting participants.
