Majidi Joins NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education

Professor Carmel Majidi will join more than 70 of the nation's brightest young engineering researchers and educators Sept. 19-21 at the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) 10th Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) Symposium in Wilmington, Delaware.

This year's program will focus on cutting-edge developments in four areas: Designing and Analyzing Social Networks; Cognitive Manufacturing; Energy and Reducing Our Dependence on Fossil Fuels; and Flexible Electronics.

"The well-being of society will rely on engineering ideas developed by our nation's leading technology thinkers," said NAE President Charles M. Vest. "The Frontiers of Engineering program gives some of our most talented early career innovators the opportunity to create interdisciplinary relationships that are critical to shaping and advancing the future."

"This is a wonderful opportunity and a great way to network with some of my research colleagues nationwide," said Majidi.  Program participants come from industry, academia and government and were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations and chosen from 310 applicants. DuPont is hosting the event.
