Also at the ceremony, we awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. James Truchard, the president, CEO, and co-founder of National Instruments; the Rising Engineering Star award to Justine Haupt, a design engineer with Brookhaven National Laboratory; and we had a special presentation to honor the first-ever Gadget Freak of the Year. Come back to DesignNews.com later this week for more on these awards and to hear from our distinguished recipients.
This year we worked with FIRST, an organization founded by Dean Kamen committed to showing youth the promising futures that science and technology can hold. Proceeds from the event -- to the tune of $25,000 -- benefited FIRST and go toward scholarships to high school engineering students to further their ambitions.
Congratulations again to all of our finalists and to our winners!

I agree. The slide show and technologies presented where awesome. I was really intrigued with Analog Devices wireless machine monitoring products. I can truly see an automation manufacter using their product to create and industrial internet thus having all machine peformance data available via the cloud. Great slides Lauren!
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
