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.

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
