Dy to Represent Northeastern
Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Jennifer Dy was one of only 100 young engineers in the country to be invited to attend the 2013 National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium.
The 2013 US Frontiers of Engineering was hosted by DuPont on September 19-21, at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington, Delaware. About 100 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: Designing and Analyzing Social Networks, Cognitive Manufacturing, Energy: Reducing our Dependence on Fossil Fuels, and Flexible Electronics.
The goal of the Frontiers of Engineering program is to bring together engineers from all engineering disciplines and from industry, universities, and federal labs to facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange and promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields in order to sustain and build U.S. innovative capacity.
