With the nomination process well underway, we have received some great nominations for this year's Rising Engineering Star award.
Like last year, we are depending on you to tell us about engineers who are making big moves and influencing the design engineering community. Our nominees will appear online and in our January 2014 print issue. The top innovator, chosen by Design News editors and our esteemed Advisory Board, will be announced during a live ceremony at the MD&M West show in February in Anaheim, Calif.
Last year, we saw nominees who were creating robotic hands, interactive displays, human-like bipedal walking robots, and wireless battery-operated mesh networks. We even had a world-recognized expert in the field of lightweight composites in the mix. Last year's winner, Punya Prakash, an applications engineer innovating home and building automation, impressed us all with her leadership skills and community involvement.
We are extending the deadline for nominations through November 15, so be sure to tell us about an engineer who is ahead of the trends and really making big moves in the industry. We want to give them the recognition that they deserve.
Nominations can be made here.
