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.

Punya was indeed worthy of the award! Someone has some big shoes to fill this year, but I am confident the next winner will be equally, if not more, impressive!

Well put, Chuck. The key to the success of the Next Rising Engineering Star is a strong line-up of candidates. That depends on companies nominating their best engineers.

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.

Not to sound like I'm vain in anyway but yes, I am the next rising engineering star. There's no need to look any further.

RISING ENGINEERING STAR

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.

@bobjengr Wow that is impressive! We definitely look forward to seeing all of her accomplishments, and please keep us updated on her progress in the future.

Latest Analysis
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
