AAEOY stands for Asian American Engineer of the Year award, an annual
recognition event on a national platform to honor outstanding Asian
American professionals in Science and Engineering for their technical
achievements, leadership and public services. As a part of the
DiscoverE (previously known
as National Engineers Week)
Program, AAEOY was first introduced in 2002. This event has since become
a prestigious and important forum for Corporate America, Academia, and
Government entities in promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics) activities.
To further contribute back to our communities, AAEOY will partner with
the CIE/USA area chapters and DiscoverE to kick-off a new initiative
called the Future Engineers program. As future leaders are influenced at
a young age, the purpose of this program is to coordinate and promote
STEM activities across the US among students in K-12 during the
DiscoverE Engineers Week. The past AAEOY award recipients will be called
upon to engage in Future Engineers going forward. Activities in
consideration for the Future Engineers program include: Vex Robotics,
Math Competition, and so on.
