A Recognition Program for Engineers Week 2015
The New Faces of Engineering Professional Edition program highlights
the vitality, diversity and rich contributions
of engineers 30 or younger. It is sponsored by
the DiscoverE Foundation, a
coalition of engineering societies, major
corporations and government agencies. IEEE-USA
has participated since the program began in
If you would like to nominate a student for
the New Faces of Engineering College Edition program, go to www.facebook.com/CollegeEdition.
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
Providing both stimulation and incentive for
college engineering students to explore the
variety of career options available to them
with their engineering degrees, as well as
encouraging high school students to study
engineering in college
Helping engineering students understand they
are part of a global profession
Engineers 30-years-old or younger as of 31 December
2014 are eligible.
Nominees must have a degree in engineering
from a recognized U.S. college or
