Top Engineers Honored

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) announced today that it has elected 74 new members to its ranks, bringing the total number of active members to 1857.

Another seven foreign engineers were chosen to become "associates" of the NAE. The academy now has 158 of these nonvoting members. Membership in the academy honors engineers who have made "important contributions to engineering theory and practice" and those who have shown "unusual accomplishment in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology."
