Congratulations to Professor Gerd Ceder for his election to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) for “the development of practical computational materials design and its application to the improvement of energy storage technology”. Professor Ceder was among one of 84 engineers to be elected to join the 2,281 members and 249 foreign members.
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.”
Individuals in the newly elected class will be formally inducted during a ceremony at the NAE’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 8, 2017. See more on the NAE website.
