In achieving its goals, NAE relies on the expertise and active participation of its members. NAE Fellows represent the top of the engineering profession, with a passion for engineering-based innovation to overcome many of our societal challenges, and to sustain our country’s earning power within the European and international context. Fellows are committed to make impact within the NAE through their active participation in Forum, Pivot and Advice.
NAE brings together a body of Fellows with a diverse background, elected for their prestigious track record of impactful engineering-based innovation, their motivation and ability to make a difference, and for their objective, cross-sectoral, and high integrity attitude. Fellows are outstanding engineers as witnessed by their contributions to innovation, technology transfer and market impact, or technical-scientific foundation.
Examples of innovations are innovative products, equipment, software, buildings and other physical artefacts in which the Fellow played a decisive role in the technical design or construction.
Technology transfer and market impact can be the way in which the Fellow brought artefacts to the market or society in the form of protocols, tools, measurement instruments, design methodology, standards, patents, or spin-offs.
