The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) President C.D. Mote Jr., Ph.D. (CA A ’59), has announced the election of 83 new members and 16 foreign members into the NAE. Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. “Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to ‘engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature,’ and to the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
At least nineteen of the newly elected NAE members are Tau Bates. Click here for the press release, the full list of newly elected members, their primary affiliation, and a brief statement of their principal engineering accomplishments.
The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), of which Tau Beta Pi is a founding member, is hosting its 2018 Annual Council Meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from February 8-11. More information is available here.
Tau Beta Pi has sent several members and staff to the meeting. In addition, there is a TBP alumni event Thursday evening in Albuquerque for local Tau Bates and those attending the ACHS meeting. Visit the TBP Alumni landing page for details.
