Nominations are now being accepted for New Faces of Engineering Professional and New Faces College Edition, two DiscoverE programs that recognize the achievements of both practicing engineers and engineering students. ASME members and student members who would like to nominate themselves or a colleague to represent the Society in either of the 2017 New Faces programs have until Nov. 18 to complete and submit an online nomination form.
The New Faces of Engineering Professional program highlights the contributions of early career engineers to the profession and the resulting impact on society. To represent ASME in the 2017 New Faces Professional class, nominees must be members of ASME, 30 years of age or younger as of Dec. 31, 2016, with a degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited U.S. college or university or from an equivalent international institution.
The second New Faces program, New Faces College Edition, acknowledges the accomplishments of engineering undergraduates. Nominees must be third-, fourth- or fifth-year students with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. They must also be enrolled in a Bachelor of Science engineering program from an ABET-accredited U.S. college or university or its equivalent.
The top New Faces Professional and College Edition applicants from each participating engineering organization will be selected by DiscoverE and announced on April 5, 2017. New Faces Professional winners will be featured on the DiscoverE website and in national and local U.S. media outlets. Winners of the New Faces College Edition will receive scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,000 and will be featured on the DiscoverE website, the College Edition’s Facebook page, and in an ad in their college newspaper.
