Eighty-one highly accomplished early-career engineers have been selected by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to take part in 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 be hosted by the University of Colorado, Boulder, Sept. 10-13, 2023, and 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.
The following engineers were selected as general participants for 2023:
In addition to The Grainger Foundation, sponsors for the 2023 U.S.-based symposium are the University of Colorado, Boulder, National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, and Cummins.
The mission of the NAE is to advance the welfare and prosperity of the nation by providing independent advice on matters involving engineering and technology, and by promoting a vibrant engineering profession and public appreciation of engineering. To accomplish its mission, the NAE proactively identifies and addresses issues by engaging engineers and individuals from a variety of professional and community networks and with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, traits, and skills. Informed by these engagements, the NAE promulgates the value of an engineering mindset for business, education, government, and daily life. The NAE is part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, an independent, nonprofit organization chartered by Congress to provide objective analysis and advice to the nation on matters of science, engineering, and health.
