Fu Selected to Attend US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
ECE Assistant Professor Yun Raymond Fu has been invited to represent Northeastern at the National Academy of Engineering’s 2015 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Just 100 of the nation’s outstanding young engineers, judged by the Academy to be future leaders of the engineering field, were invited to the symposium. The symposium will consist of four formal sessions, broadly covering Optical and Mechanical Metamaterials, Cybersecurity, Engineering the Search for Earth-like Planets, and Forecasting Natural Disasters. It will be held in Irvine, California from September 9-11.
The goal of the symposium is to bring future leaders of the field of engineering into contact with each other. Attendees at the symposium are selected via a rigorous process. Applicants must be between the ages of 30 and 45 who are first nominated by members of the National Academy of Engineering, professors, accomplished industry engineers, etc. Nominated applicants are judged based on their research accomplishments, their interest in developments in other fields of engineering, and their ability to integrate advancements in other engineering fields into their own work.
This is quite an honor, and ECE congratulates Professor Fu on his recognition!
