This award will work best when there is a wide assortment of nominees to choose from. So take a couple minutes and name someone you know who is making outstanding strides in the design enbgineering world.

We were lucky to have an outstanding winner this past year in Punya Prakash of Texas Instruments, thanks to the many entries that provided a great group of nominees. We encourage companies to do the same again for 2014.

Punya was indeed worthy of the award! Someone has some big shoes to fill this year, but I am confident the next winner will be equally, if not more, impressive!

RISING ENGINEERING STAR

Hello Lauren, I know of one rising star but she is a sophomore at Purdue University.  She chose Industrial Engineering and has high hopes of being on the front lines if and when manufacturing returns (BIG TIME) to our country.  Jennifer has 4.00 and according to her dad, she has her study routines down pat.  (He indicated she is so focused she takes notes on roll call.) At any rate, I suspect your notification is relative to graduate-working engineers and not students, but you can look for her name in years to come. Good post.

Let us know about her in the future, bobjengr. Not many students have a 4.0 in engineering. And, yes, I believe manufacturing (at least of big items that are expensive to transport) will be coming back in the U.S.

Well put, Chuck. The key to the success of the Next Rising Engineering Star is a strong line-up of candidates. That depends on companies nominating their best engineers.

We really look at this program as our (Design News') way of giving back to the design engineering community. We want to recognize the people who are doing some amazing things, but simply don't get the recognition that they deserve.

Good point, Rich. Recognition is one of the great performance motivators. Design News is doing a number of recognition programs this year, including the Gadget Freak of the Year Award, the Golden Mousetrap Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Not to sound like I'm vain in anyway but yes, I am the next rising engineering star. There's no need to look any further.

During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
