I agree, Elizabeth, about seeing a young woman be last year's winner. Please do nominate this young lady.

Thank you for your perspective, nyeng. It's not one we hear often from our readers and it is good to hear this perspective from the corporate engineering trenches. It's unfortunate that you aren't enjoying your experience and I hope things change or perhaps you find a better job or career path.

I didn't know one of our Gadget Freaks was a teenager. That's great! Here is another bright young mind I was thinking of: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=265603

You are so missing the point. Your career is YOUR responsibility. Go out and find a new job. You are stuck in Dilbertville. There are many great companies out there that cherish and reward their employees. You found one that does not. Now go trade those first few years if experience in for a good job at a flourishing company instead if pouting at a floundering one! Your happiness at work is under tour control--THAT'S why you got that Masters degree! Good luck!!

You're right about young, bright engineering minds out there, Elizabeth. One of them is our current teanage Gadget Freak. Also, I believe new technology will draw a greater number of young people into engineering. We're seeing a lot of flash in robotics, automotive, manufacturing, and consumer electronics that is likely to grab the imagination of a new generation.

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. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Automation technology advances matched with expanded fracking and the growing urbanization of Asia, South America, and the Middle East, are fueling a boom in the automation industry.
