The Past Half Century of Engineering – and a Look Forward

Peter Lobner

At its annual meeting on September 28-29, 2014, the National Academy of Engineering celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding. A highlight of the meeting was a forum of distinguished speakers who discussed engineering achievements of the last 50 years and looked to potential engineering achievements in the next 50 years. The new National Academies Press publication, “The Past Half Century of Engineering – and a Look Forward,” summarizes their presentations.
