After two years of meeting virtually, the National Academy of Engineering held its annual meeting on October 2nd to welcome new inductees from the Classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022! This year, CEE alumni and faculty were part of the inductees honored in the NAE ceremony, one of the highest professional honors in engineering.
The 2022 NAE Annual Meeting taps into the vast array of knowledge from professionals whose expertise covers solar power, renewable energy, modular reactors, and more. Their decades-long experience finding creative solutions, researching data, and sharing information provides insights into technology pathways to a clean energy transition.
The NAE consists of 12 sections representing broad engineering sections with conversations about issues and trends in each discipline. In Section 4 (Civil Engineering), there was a total of 38 members inducted, with 32% having a direct connection to Berkeley CEE!
