Professor Gregory G. Deierlein was elected to the NAE Class of 2013 for his "development of advanced structural analysis and design techniques and their implementation in design codes". He is one of 69 members elected this year, eight of which are from Stanford University.
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."
A list of all the newly elected members can be found on the NAE website, www.nae.edu.
