The AguaClara program at Cornell University was featured in the National Academy of Engineering's most recent report, as one of the 29 engineering programs at US colleges that effectively incorporate real world experiences in their curriculum. The report titled, "Infusing Real World Experiences into Engineering" was released on November 13, 2012. 

According to the NAE's website, "Infusing Real World Experiences into Engineering Education showcases 29 engineering programs at US colleges and universities that effectively incorporate real world experiences in their curriculum, and highlights best practices for schools seeking to create new programs. Best practices include incorporating multidisciplinary team-based projects into curricula to help students develop skills in decision making, leadership, written and oral communication, organization/time management, cultural awareness, and problem solving. The report identifies impediments to infusing real world experiences in engineering programs and suggests ideas for overcoming them."
