WASHINGTON — DiscoverE is honoring 12 of the nation’s most promising engineering professionals of tomorrow with its fourth annual New Faces of Engineering College Edition. These students exemplify the vision, innovation and leadership skills that form the foundational elements of a successful engineering career.
This year’s group displays a singular commitment to effecting positive change through substantive, real world applications of their skills and training. The students participate in a diverse range of projects and initiatives from honoree Jennifer Kearney building pedestrian bridges in third world countries to Angadbir Saberherwal working on waste shredding in the Philippines.
In addition to their engineering feats and pro-social initiatives, these students have also demonstrated academic excellence and leadership within student organizations, as well as outstanding communication skills and non-engineering related community service. The 2015 class is actively involved in the student chapters of their engineering societies and engineering outreach both on and off campus.
“We are proud to recognize the accomplishments of these exemplary college engineering students,” said Leslie Collins, executive director of DiscoverE. “They are tomorrow’s leaders and we are excited to see where their knowledge, creativity and ingenuity will them — and us — in the years ahead.”
Sponsored by NCEES, College Edition recognizes students in the third, fourth and fifth years of their undergraduate engineering degree.
