The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected 67 new members and 12 foreign members, announced NAE President C.D. (Dan) Mote Jr. today. This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,263 and the number of foreign members to 221.
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."
The three Indian professors elected to the NAE are:
Chandrakasan, Anantha, Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering and head, department of electrical engineering and computer science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge. For development of low-power circuit and system design methods.
