Prof. Thomas E. Murphy has been selected to participate in the 2010 National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium to be held December 13 – 16, 2010, at the National Academies' Beckman Center in Irvine, CA.

Since 1995, the NAE has held an annual Frontiers of Engineering symposium that brings together a select group of outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) from U.S. companies, universities, and government labs to discuss leading-edge research and technical work across a range of engineering fields.

The symposium convenes engineers from disparate fields and challenges them to think about developments and problems at the frontiers of areas different from their own. It results in collaborative work, transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and fosters contacts among the next generation of leaders in engineering.

Each Frontiers symposium covers four topics that vary from year to year. For more information about NAE's Frontiers of Engineering, visit www.naefrontiers.org.
