8 Stanford Engineering faculty elected to National Academy of Engineering

Eight professors from the Stanford University School of Engineering are among the newly elected National Academy of Engineering (NAE) members, the NAE said today.

According to the NAE, membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."

There are just 2,250 U.S. members of NAE and 211 foreign associates. The eight newly elected members bring Stanford Engineering's NAE membership to more than 80.

The eight Stanford faculty elected in 2013 are:
