Participate in the New Faces of Engineering 2008


Have you been part of an exciting, interesting, or prominent engineering project? 

Would you like to represent up-and-coming engineers? 

NSPE is seeking nominations of dynamic, young engineers for the 2008 New Faces of Engineering, a recognition program sponsored by Engineers Week. The initiative promotes the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and their impact on society.

Individuals selected from the various engineering societies will be featured in a full-page advertisement in USA Today during Engineers Week (February 17-23, 2008). Each photo will be captioned with the engineer’s name, the name of the engineering society providing the nominee, the employer, and a brief statement of that individual’s accomplishments as they relate to the public welfare.

Circulation will include not only USA Today but also the engineering trade press, the individual’s local press, and the Web sites of Engineers Week and the sponsoring engineering societies, among others. Learn more about Engineers Week!

Young Engineers


If you’re an NSPE member and an engineer intern or licensed working engineer two to five years out of college or graduate school who could represent the up-and-coming in the profession, seek nomination now!
