The National Academy of Engineering has laid out a series of challenges that it is vital for engineers to help solve. From the energy crisis to security to simply enriching life, we have dedicated ourselves to empowering engineers to create solutions. We have also paved the way for other universities and committed to the Grand Challenges Scholar Program, a program which encourages engineers to be well prepared to solve these problems.
Below is a selection of some of the problems you want to solve, and which majors can come together to accomplish this. These challenges are inherently interdisciplinary, and there is no one right approach to solving them. Whichever path you choose, you will be contributing to a better society.
