Nominations are now open for this year's Rising Engineering Star award.
For the third year, we are depending on you to tell us about engineers who are making big moves and influencing the design engineering community. Our nominees will appear online and in our January 2015 print issue. The top innovator, chosen by Design News editors and our esteemed Advisory Board, will be announced during a live ceremony at the MD&M West show in February in Anaheim, Calif.
Last year, our finalists were working on underwater robotic fish, software for smart glasses, and prosthetic limbs. Last year's winner, Justine Haupt of Brookhaven National Laboratory, was designing test systems for the focal plane components of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which will be the world's largest digital camera.
The deadline is October 28, so be sure to tell us about an engineer who is ahead of the trends and really making big moves in the industry. We want to give them the recognition that they deserve.
Nominations can be made here.
