Great example of a rising engineering star

This is a terrific program. All of the candidates this year were more than worthy of this honor. Justine stood out because of the wide variety of her accomplishments, and for giving back to her professional community.

I agree, Rob. We had such a great group of canidates this year, but Justine stood out from the rest. We will be posting the finialists on Monday so be sure to check back. Congrats Justine!

Quit an impressive resume, no doubt.

Justine Haupt si certainly a rising star based on the description in the posting. Very good selecting, and very little chance for argument, that is certain.

But what a "tough act to follow", with the bar set so high the search for next year's selection will be a real challenge. 

Some of her creations sound interesting, is there any chance that we might get a more detailed description of them some time in the future?

Yes congratulations! As the father of several young ladies who are interested in the sciences I will have to show this article to them for inspiration. Good to see an example of what hard work and talent can produce. Congrats again and keep up the good work.

My jaw kept dropping as I read the list of this star's accomplishments.  Athletes and pop music stars do not deserve one tenth the recognition that Justine Haupt does.  I am amazed at the breadth of accomplishment she has attained.  It was Andrew Morris, frequent Gadget Freak contributor who directed me to this article.  She illustrates the concept that if you want to predict the future, then invent it.  I define power as the ability to achieve purpose.  This young woman certainly has a lot of power to change the world.

jnissen,

I agree. In all the electronics technology courses I teach at both Lawrence County Center of Technology and ITT Technical Institute I constantly tell my students that hardwork does payoff. This article is an example of the benefits of perfoming such works.  Yes, congratulations is inorder and keep up the great work!!!

78RPM,

I agree. Justine Haupt is definitely changing the future by inventing it. She is definitely an inspiration to all of us especially women in engineering and technology. I will definitely be sharing this article with my students enrolled in my electronics technology classes I teach at Lawrence County Center of Technology. I hope my female students can see how impressive Justine's career has been and try to create such a path for themselves.

You bring it some very valid points regarding next's year competition descriptions and the bar being raised. I noticed every Capstone I've participating in at ITT Technical Institutes School of Electronics, the caliber of projects created by the students every quarter seems to raise the bar in technical acumen and fabrication quality. I believe next's years Rising Star candidates will definitely come close or exceeds Justine's impressive engineering background and accomplishments because of the low cost-sophisticated engineering tools available to them.

MrDon, hard work usually does pay off, especially hard work learning. I have made an effort to continue learning throughout my engineering career, and it has been useful. How many other electronic engineers can domechanical designs as well, run the large machineshop tools such as a lathe and a mill, design pneumatic circuits, and then be able to adequately supervise those doing whatever other work needs to be done. So there is a good bit of value in adding to what an individual knows and understands. Not all managers are aware of that, but it certainly helps to be able to successfully acomplish whatever goals one is given.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
