About Engineering (ENG)
The National Science Foundation promotes the progress of engineering
in the United States in order to enable the Nation's capacity to
perform. Its investments in engineering research and education aim
to build and strengthen a national capacity for innovation that can
lead over time to the creation of new shared wealth and a better
quality of life. Most NSF programs in engineering are funded through
the Directorate for Engineering, which also sponsors the NSF's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)
The NSF Directorate for Engineering is led by Pramod Khargonekar, Assistant Director for Engineering.
