The National Academy of Engineering Awards is now closed. Please refer to the NAE Awards website for further information.
The National Academy of Engineering salutes leaders in engineering for their lifetime dedication to their field and their commitment to advancing the human condition through great engineering achievement and/or through innovation in engineering and technology education. The NAE dedicates more than $1 million annually to recognize these leaders and to bring better understanding of the importance of engineering and engineering education to society.
Currently, the NAE presents seven awards for engineering achievement and innovation - the Charles Stark Draper Prize for Engineering, the Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ Prize, the Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education, the Simon Ramo Founders Award, the Arthur M. Bueche Award, the Gibbs Brothers Medal and the J. C. Hunsaker Award in Aeronautical Engineering.

For more than three decades the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has been recognizing outstanding engineers for their dedication to their discipline as well as for their development of (or substantial involvement in) an engineering invention or process that has significantly contributed to technological progress, innovation in engineering education, or society’s well-being. The awards, which total more than $1 million annually, also enhance understanding of the importance of engineering to society.
