New Face of Engineering

The New Faces of Engineering recognition program, introduced by  ASHRAE in 2003, is part of National Engineers Week—sponsored by DiscoveryE (formerly known as the National Engineers Week Foundation)—a coalition of engineering societies, major corporations and government agencies. Engineers Week promotes New Faces to provide incentive to those in college and inspire even younger students to consider engineering careers.

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


Nominees/applicants must be 30 years or younger as of Dec. 31, 2016 and 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.


Nominations for the 2016 New Face were open from September 9 – November 20, 2015. . Nominations for the 2017 New Face will open in the fall of 2016.
