    The National Academy of Engineering is a private organization established in 1964 to share in the responsibility given the National Academy of Sciences under its congressional charter signed by Presi­dent Lincoln in 1863 to examine and report on questions of science and engineering at the request of the federal government. Individ­uals are elected to the National Academy of Engineering on the basis of significant contributions to engineering theory and practice and to the literature of engineering or demonstrated unusual accomplish­ments in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology.
