National Academy of Engineering

Professor Per Peterson, Elected to the National Academy of Engineering

February 07, 2020


The Nuclear Engineering Department would like to recognize our very own Professor Per Peterson on his elected membership to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Per Peterson was elected for his distinguished contributions in experimental and analytical research for the design and development of passive safety systems for advanced nuclear reactors.

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."
