IIE seeks a New Face of Engineering for 2014
From staff reports
The New Faces of Engineering (Professional) strives to promote the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on society. The campaign is designed to enhance and improve the image of engineering by:
- Putting faces to what has often been referred to as "the stealth profession."
- Showing a group of young, diverse and talented engineers, thereby portraying engineering as an exciting profession open to everyone.
- Helping engineering students understand they are part of a global profession.
Once again, IIE is among the engineering societies participating in this initiative, and it's accepting nominations. The IIE nomination criteria follow:
- Nominees must be 30 years old or younger as of Dec. 31.
- Nominees must be members of IIE.
- Nominees must have a degree in industrial engineering from an ABET-accredited U.S. college or university or from an equivalent international educational institution.
The selected nominee will be featured in a USA Today advertisement during National Engineers Week Feb. 16-22, 2014.
The complete criteria and nomination form can be found at www.iienet.org/faces14. Self-nominations are accepted. Complete nominations must be submitted to Monica Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Nov. 1.
