Klein Elected to the National Academy of Engineering

February 8, 2016
The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected WJE Executive Vice President and Senior Principal Gary Klein to the Academy.

Election to the NAE 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."

Klein, a thirty-seven-year veteran of WJE, was selected for his “investigations of national and international infrastructure and conveying knowledge from these investigations to the profession.”

“I am humbled by this recognition,” said Klein. “It is a distinct honor and would not be possible without the contributions of my fellow employees over nearly four decades. Our work at WJE has always been a team endeavor.”

The newest class of eighty honorees and twenty-two foreign members brings the total NAE U.S. membership to 2,275 and the number of foreign members to 232.
