Mitul Luhar Selected to Attend the 2020 NAE Frontiers of Engineering

Mitul Luhar, the Henry Salvatori Early Career Chair and assistant professor in aerospace and mechanical engineering, has been selected to attend the 2020 NAE Frontiers of Engineering. The Frontiers of Engineering (FOE) program brings together about a 100 early career engineers from around the United States to discuss the most pressing engineering challenges we face as a society. The topics to be discussed at the 2020 US FOE include how the agrevolution is shaping what we’ll eat in the future, next-generation energy stems integration, engineering innovation in women’s health, and challenges and innovations related to plastic pollution. The goal of the meetings is to introduce outstanding engineers ┬áto each other, and through this interaction, facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders. The US FOE will take place in September.
