National Academy of Engineering

Election to the NAE is the most prestigious honor in engineering. Founded in 1964, the organization serves with the National Academy of Sciences as an advisory board for the federal government through the National Research Council. Out of approximately 10 million engineers in the United States, only about 2,000 are members of the NAE. The group is composed of engineers from both academia and industry.
