LG Energy Solution Michigan Inc. Tech Center in Troy announced that its president, Denise Gray, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), a private, independent, nonprofit institution that provides engineering leadership in service to the nation.
“I’m very honored to be elected as a member in the National Academy of Engineering, one of the most prestigious engineering organizations in the country,” Gray says. “I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of engineering excellence. I am humbled to be recognized this way.”
Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions bestowed upon engineers. To receive membership, an engineer must 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.”
The NAE has more than 2,000 peer-elected members and international members, senior professionals in business, academia, and government who are among the world’s most accomplished engineers. Notable members include Mary Barra, chair and CEO of Detroit’s General Motors Co., Elon Musk, and more.
