Julie Pietrzak, PE Invited to Organize and Participate in the 2018 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
Julie Pietrzak, PE, a Senior Project Manager at Enovate, has been invited by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to participate in the 2018 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium (USFOE) September 5-7 at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Massachusetts.
Each year, the NAE organizes the USFOE to bring together what the Academy calls “exceptional” engineers from 30 to 45 years old to “facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange and promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields in order to sustain and build U.S. innovative capacity”.
Participation is by invitation only, following a competitive selection process, with invitations extended to roughly 100 engineers. This is Pietrzak’s second invitation to a Frontiers Symposium; she attended the U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in 2017.
The 2018 USFOE will focus on the latest advances in four areas: Quantum Computing, Technology for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief, Resilient and Reliable Infrastructure, and Theranostics. Pietrzak has been acting as an Organizing Committee Member for Resilient and Reliable Infrastructure throughout the year leading up to the 2018 USFOE and aided in the selection of this year’s speakers and participants.
Pietrzak has expertise in flood mitigation, track and rail, earthen embankments, and stormwater management and holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering from Hofstra University. In 2017, she was named a “Top Young Professional” by Engineering News Record. She is a licensed Professional Engineer in New York and California.
Enovate Engineering is a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE).
