CEE counts 10 NAE members among active faculty

Among CEE's 49 regular and active emeriti faculty (Professors of the Graduate School), 10 have received the distinction of being selected for membership into the prestigious National Academy of Engineering.

This represents 20% of the department, an unusually high percentage, and one of the reasons why CEE's graduate programs continue to be ranked so highly.
