National Engineers Week, Feb. 17-23, 2013

New Faces of Engineering

The recognition program, introduced by ASHRAE in 2003, is part of National Engineers Week, Feb. 17-23, 2013. New Faces highlights the exciting and often unique work of young engineers and the resulting impact on society.

Engineers 30 years of age or younger as of Dec. 31, 2012, are the focus of the program. ASHRAE members are encouraged to nominate deserving young engineers so that they might have the opportunity to earn recognition in their chosen field.

"The people that I met and their obvious commitment to our profession made me even more proud to be an engineer than I was before. We have important work to do for our clients and for the world in which we live."

-Amy Jarvis, ASHRAE's 2012 New Face of Engineering, Mechanical Engineer, Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch, Portland, Ore.

Jarvis was selected for her role as one of three lead authors of the World Health Organization's "Healthcare in the Green Economy, How Carbon Reduction May Impact Health in Health Sector Services," for which she developed strategies combining reduced carbon impact with improved health care. She also works with Healthcare Without Harm to develop guides for low-resource facilities to implement these strategies.

Nominate Now!

Nominees must have a degree in engineering from a recognized U.S. college or university, or from an equivalent international educational institution. Degrees in engineering technology, science, computer science and similar disciplines do not qualify, though a degree in computer engineering is acceptable.

Complete nominations, including a photo, must be submitted to ASHRAE by Friday, Oct. 19, 2012. The nominations should try to tie at least one achievement to something the non-engineering community can appreciate.
