Musk, Microsoft chairman, Apple vice president can be the academician of the Academy of Engineering in the end?

A total of 111 US academicians and 22 foreign academicians have been added to the 2021 National Academy of Engineering (CAE) list, the US Academy of Engineering announced on Feb 9.The most notable of these is Elon Musk.”I usually describe myself as an engineer,” Musk said on social media.Being elected to the National Academy of Engineering is one of the highest professional honors given to engineering experts.As the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk has only a bachelor’s degree, which makes him the focus of the cae’s selection.An interesting fact is that the American Academy of Engineering is not only one of the most authoritative national engineering academies in the world, but also one of the national engineering academies with the most entrepreneurs.The founders of many of the most familiar companies are members of the American Academy of Engineering.Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, for example, is also a member of the Academy of Engineering. He was elected in 2018.Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, was elected to the American Academy of Engineering in 1997.Google’s two founders, Larry Page in 2004 and Sergey Brin in 2009, are both members of the American Academy of Engineering.Microsoft, whose founder Bill Gates is an academician of the American Academy of Engineering, is also a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.He was elected an Academician of the American Academy of Engineering in 1996 and a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2017.He is also the only entrepreneur elected to the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2017.In fact, more and more entrepreneurs and enterprise workers have been nominated by the Chinese Academy of Engineering since 2017, the same year That Bill Gates was elected.In 2019, more than 110 entrepreneurs were nominated.The list of academicians selected by the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2021, which has just ended, also includes quite a number of entrepreneurs and scientific workers from enterprises.Although there is a point of view that academicians of the Academy of Engineering are more inclined to apply science than academicians of the Academy of Sciences.Applied science is often combined with production, learning and research. It is not improper to choose entrepreneurs as academicians of the Academy of Engineering.However, from the perspective of national practice, usually those countries choose entrepreneurs to become their own academy of engineering, more often is a “business”.I give you Tittle, you give me funding for research or you drive production practices in real industry.It is noteworthy that the American Academy of Engineering has 4,628 academicians in total and 2,565 academicians are still alive.The Chinese Academy of Engineering has a total of 1098 academicians, of whom 821 are still alive.The US academy of Engineering has almost three times as many academicians as China.The American Academy of Engineering was established in 1964 and the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 1994.By year, the US Academy of Engineering should have about twice as many academicians as China.A total of 111 new members were elected to the American Academy of Engineering and 84 to the Chinese Academy of Sciences this year.It is worth noting that researchers working for corporations in the United States are the main force in engineering research due to different social structures.Ignoring the Chinese and American differences in the proportion of technical personnel coming from enterprises, and assuming that cae recruits the same number of researchers as China, cae is equivalent to providing 27 additional seats for American entrepreneurs.I think this is another important reason why CAE can maintain a high academic reputation while co-selecting quite a number of entrepreneurs.In nineteen nineteen, Robin Li, founder of Baidu, was nominated as a candidate of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, which caused a great uproar, many friends must remember.The difference between the competitors and the selection criteria of the shortlisted members of the Chinese and American Academy of Engineering is the key to whether the entrepreneurs elected as academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering will be considered as water academicians by the public.It is clear that many American entrepreneurs, including Musk, are not water academicians for the CAE.
