Miao Yu selected for NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

Miao Yu selected for NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

ISR-affiliated Associate Professor Miao Yu (ME) is among 100 engineers under the age of 45 invited to attend the National Academy of Engineering’s 2012 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in September in Warren, Mich.

The engineers will meet for an intensive symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: vehicle electrification, serious games, climate engineering, and engineering materials for the biological interface. Each participant also will present aspects of their own research to their colleagues.

About the Frontiers of Engineering Symposia
Since 1995, the NAE has held an annual Frontiers of Engineering symposium that brings together outstanding young engineers (ages 30-45) from U.S. companies, universities, and government labs to discuss leading-edge research and technical work across a range of engineering fields.

The goal is to gather engineers from all engineering disciplines and from industry, universities, and federal labs to facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange and promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields in order to sustain and build U.S. innovative capacity.

The symposium challenges participants to think about developments and problems at the frontiers of areas different from their own. It results in collaborative work, transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and fosters contacts among the next generation of leaders in engineering. Over the years, the Frontiers program has expanded to include international meetings with Germany, Japan, India, China, and the EU.
