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!

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.

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.

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings.
