Nagel, selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, will join 72 of the nation’s most innovative engineering educators to take part in the symposium held October 14-17 in Irvine, California. The two and a half day event will focus on innovations in the context, curriculum, and delivery of engineering education and is dedicated to strengthening the engineering and innovation capacity of the nation by catalyzing a vibrant community of emerging engineering education leaders.

According to NAE President Charles M. Vest, "The Frontiers of Engineering Education program creates a unique venue for engineering faculty members to share and explore interesting and effective innovations in teaching and learning. We want FOEE to become a major force in identifying, recognizing, and promulgating advances and innovations in order to build a strong intellectual infrastructure and commitment to 21st-century engineering education.”
