“The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) is a private, independent, nonprofit institution that provides engineering leadership in service to the nation”


Being elected to the National Academy of Engineering is one of the most prestigious accomplishments any engineer can aspire to achieve. With current membership at a little more than 2,000, and only 86 inductees this year, it’s also one of the most exclusive engineering honors in the world.

We are so proud to announce that Professor Berok Khoshnevis, Dean’s Professor in the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Professor Mahta Moghaddam, the William Hogue Professor in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. Professor Moghaddam was cited for development of physics-based computational algorithms and Professor Khoshnevis was cited for innovations in manufacturing and construction.
