Five future industry leaders making their mark in engineering

At this year’s Fall Conference in Marco Island, Florida, ACEC presented five engineers with the prestigious 2021 Young Professional of the Year Award. All employed by member firms, the recipients were selected by the College of Fellows for already demonstrating outstanding contributions to the engineering profession despite being in the early stages of their careers.

“These are the future leaders of our industry,” said ACEC President and CEO Linda Bauer Darr. “They are the bright young men and women who are always ready to take on a new project, and whose intelligence and fresh perspectives bring new insights to our built environment.”
