The U.S. National Academy of Engineering (NAE) is an elected group of our nation’s (and the world’s) most accomplished engineers.  Its mission is to “promote the technological welfare of the nation by marshalling the knowledge and insights of eminent members of the engineering profession.”  The NAE is part of the National Academies (along with the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council), an independent non-profit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress to provide objective analysis and advice to the nation on matters of science and technology.
