New Faces recognizes the outstanding talents, skills and abilities of our next generation of engineering leaders (age 30 or younger) by celebrating their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on society. Honorees are featured on the DiscoverE web site and in a national print outlet during Engineers Week (February 21–27, 2016) and recognized by their nominating professional societies in a variety of ways.

The New Faces of Engineering-Professional strives to promote the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on society. The campaign is designed to enhance and improve the image of engineering by:
- Putting faces to what has often been referred to as "the stealth profession";
- Showing a group of young, diverse and talented engineers, thereby portraying engineering as an exciting profession open to everyone;
- Providing both stimulation and incentive for college engineering students to explore the variety of career options available to them with their engineering degrees as well as encouraging high school students to study engineering in college.
