National Academy of Engineering Elects 111 Members and 22 International Members

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected 111 new members and 22 international members, announced NAE President John L. Anderson today. This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,388 and the number of international members to 310.

Congratulations to SpectrumX Research Partner Zoya Popovic, distinguished professor, and Lockheed Martin Endowed Chair, Electrical Computer and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado, Boulder for being elected to this distinguished group. She has made significant contributions to developing high-efficiency microwave transmitters and active antenna arrays for wireless communication systems and engineering education.

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.”  Election of new NAE members is the culmination of a year-long process. The ballot is set in December and the final vote for membership occurs during January.
