Studies and programs related to engineering and technology cut across the many operational units of The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The results of these activities are published as reports and proceedings that add to the growing body of knowledge on engineering and technology practice and policy.

You can order these publications or read them online at the website of the National Academies Press. Most reports are available as free PDFs.
