This award will work best when there is a wide assortment of nominees to choose from. So take a couple minutes and name someone you know who is making outstanding strides in the design enbgineering world.
We were lucky to have an outstanding winner this past year in Punya Prakash of Texas Instruments, thanks to the many entries that provided a great group of nominees. We encourage companies to do the same again for 2014.
We really look at this program as our (Design News') way of giving back to the design engineering community. We want to recognize the people who are doing some amazing things, but simply don't get the recognition that they deserve.
Good point, Rich. Recognition is one of the great performance motivators. Design News is doing a number of recognition programs this year, including the Gadget Freak of the Year Award, the Golden Mousetrap Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Hello Lauren, I know of one rising star but she is a sophomore at Purdue University. She chose Industrial Engineering and has high hopes of being on the front lines if and when manufacturing returns (BIG TIME) to our country. Jennifer has 4.00 and according to her dad, she has her study routines down pat. (He indicated she is so focused she takes notes on roll call.) At any rate, I suspect your notification is relative to graduate-working engineers and not students, but you can look for her name in years to come. Good post.
Let us know about her in the future, bobjengr. Not many students have a 4.0 in engineering. And, yes, I believe manufacturing (at least of big items that are expensive to transport) will be coming back in the U.S.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
