A professor of aerospace engineering and two professors of computer science and electrical engineering were formally inducted Sept. 30 into the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), widely considered among the highest honors to be earned in the engineering and technology professions. Stelios Kyriakides, the Temple Foundation Endowed Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, was elected for his “contributions to understanding of propagating instability phenomena in structures and materials and its use for technological applications.” Simon Lam, the Regents Chair in Computer Sciences in the Department of Computer Sciences, was elected for his “contributions to computer network protocols and network security services.” J. Strother Moore, the Admiral B.R. Inman Centennial Chair in Computing Theory in the Department of Computer Sciences, was elected for his “contributions to automated reasoning about computing systems.” The NAE serves as an advisory board to federal government departments and agencies, to examine and report on any engineering topics of interest to the government. It also conducts independent studies to analyze important topics in engineering and technology. The University of Texas at Austin now has 32 NAE members and boasts the second highest number of NAE members on its faculty among public universities.
