"You're welcome, mydesign. That's a pretty impressive group -- Bonnie Dunbar, Alan Mulally, Burt Rutan and Raymond Kurzweil."

Charles, we are expecting these names in top 10 by next year.

Charles, thanks for the link. Hope some of our female editors and contributors may be in that list in very near future.

Elizabeth, coming up with the list if the top female engineers are a commendable job! My greatest inspiration is Jocelyn Goldfein who has clearly proved that women engineers are as smart as the male engineers. At the moment, I am undertaking an engineering course and the fact that there is an increase in the number of female engineers really inspires me. I think that more females should be given a chance to venture into the male dominated fields. I look forward to a time when we will have a list of the top 100 female engineers.

Bobjengr, no doubt initially it was a mind set that usually those girls end up doing engineering whose fathers were engineering and I myself is one of them :). These days only those engineers are successfull who not only have advanced degrees from well recognized Universities but also have good hands on .

@Andy i totally agree with you and its really very good to see women engineers moving so far ahead and making space  for themselves in the industry. There was a time when if any women entered into engineering or showed their concern towards this field it was considered to be very odd but thank God these days these stereo types and thinkings have changed alot.

Back in time everyone always believed that engineering was only for men. In fact women even shied off from taking engineering as a course. In most engineering classes 70% of the attendants are mostly male students.  It is good to see that women have stepped up and joined this field and not scared to put up their input. It is amazing that women are even better engineers than there male counterparts. Women engineers have more passion in their job input and they deliver a much better product in the long run.

Thanks for your compliment, bobjengr. That's a really interesting story, and it's good to see how far we've come. Yes, a parent's career seems to have a big influence on a child's choice of study as well. It's interesting that these young ladies wanted to be like their fathers; I think if more young women go into engineering because they are emulating their mothers, then we will know we've really come far with getting women into the field. It does seem to be changing, though, and that's a very positive thing.

Thanks for reminding me, Rich! I did take a look at those two women and they are certainly worth of the list. If I did more than 10 they would've certainly been on it.

Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
