Prof. Andrea Alù selected for U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
Prof. Andrea Alù was selected to participate in the 2014 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Participation in the symposium is based on a rigorous application and selection process determined by the organizing committee. Each year, 100 engineers under the age of 45 meet for an intensive multi-day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in the areas of next generation robotics, materials for batteries, impacts of shale gas and oil on the economy, environment, energy sustainability and technologies for the heart.
The goal of the Frontiers of Engineering program is to promote cross-disciplinary exchange and the transfer of new techniques to sustain and build U.S. innovative capacity. The symposium creates interaction among engineers from industry, academia and federal labs. The symposium will take place at the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering in Irvine, California from September 11-13, 2014.
