Stephanie Adams, the College of Engineering's assistant dean of research, has been selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering's 12th annual Frontiers of Engineering symposium.
The symposium brings together engineers ages 30 to 45 who are performing cutting-edge engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines. Adams was one of 81 participants chosen from a pool of nearly 200 applicants, which included representatives from industry, academia and government.
"It is an honor that someone noticed my contributions to engineering and engineering education and found me deserving enough to nominate me," Adams said. "I am excited about this experience because it will provide me the opportunity to meet other outstanding engineers and future engineering leaders."
Adams said she hopes her participation will allow UNL to have a role in up and coming research areas.
The symposium will be Sept. 21-23 at the Ford Research and Innovation Center in Dearborn, Mich., and will examine the nanotechnology-biology interface, intelligent software systems and machines, supply chain management and personal mobility.
Program sponsors are the Ford Motor Co., the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Science Foundation, Microsoft Corp., Cummins Inc., and numerous individual donors.
The National Academy of Engineering is an independent, nonprofit institution established in 1964 to serve as an adviser to government and the public on issues in engineering and technology.
