Fall is in the air, and you know what that means, don't you? It's awards season at Design News.
We are looking for the best products and the best engineers -- the ones who are making strides in the field of design engineering and are not looking back. Is that you or someone you know? If so,
nominate that person (or yourself) in our annual Rising Engineering Stars contest.
