Nomination Deadline Extended for IEEE/IEEE-USA's
2011 "New Faces of Engineering"

WASHINGTON (08 October 2010) — If you haven't nominated a younger engineer for recognition as IEEE/IEEE-USA's 2011 "New Face of Engineering," your time is running short. The good news is that the nomination deadline has been extended a week to Friday, 22 October.

The Engineers Week (EWeek) "New Faces of Engineering" program recognizes engineers new to the profession with outstanding educational and career accomplishments. The program is open to IEEE members worldwide.

"New Faces" is designed to promote the importance of technical education, celebrate engineering careers and recognize significant contributions to the engineering profession and society. Each year, the EWeek website ( features the photos and biographies of five notable young engineers from each EWeek sponsoring society. In addition, each society"s top nominee is recognized during EWeek in a full-page ad in USA Today.

To be eligible for recognition, engineers must be 30 or younger as of 31 December 2010, have a degree in engineering from a recognized U.S. college or university or equivalent international educational institution. Degrees in engineering technology, science, computer science and similar disciplines do not qualify; a degree in computer engineering is acceptable. IEEE/IEEE-USA nominees must be an IEEE member.

Judges will evaluate nominees based on their educational attainment, engineering achievements and participation and accomplishments in professional and technical society activities. Particular consideration is given to work (e.g. volunteering, publishing, conference presentations) in IEEE technical societies.

IEEE nominations can be submitted through IEEE regional directors, section and GOLD chairs, or independently, and should be directed to Sharon Richardson at Self-nominations are not permitted. The nomination form and more information are available at

The "New Faces of Engineering" program is now in its ninth year. Sanna Gaspard, IEEE/IEEE-USA's 2010 "New Face," was featured in the Sept. 2010 print edition of IEEE's newspaper, The Institute:

Sponsored by more than 100 engineering, science and education societies, as well as major corporations dedicated to increasing public awareness and appreciation of engineering, EWeek is celebrated annually by thousands of engineers, engineering students, teachers and leaders in government and business. IEEE served as lead society during EWeek 1993 and 2004.

EWeek 2011 is 20-26 February.

IEEE-USA advances the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of more than 210,000 engineers, scientists and allied professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.
