Most of us have an engineer who we admire for going above and beyond in the advancement of their field. Or perhaps you are passionate about your field and do that yourself. If either of these sounds familiar to you, it is time to recognize that person by nominating them for the DesignCon 2022 “Engineer of the Year” Award.

Each year, DesignCon recognizes excellence in hardware design engineering with the Engineer of the Year Award. Engineers have been particularly challenged in the past years, and now more than ever, amazing engineers have stepped forward to meet those challenges head-on. Please help DesignCon recognize these engineers by nominating them for the award here.

This year, the DesignCon expo and conference will be back at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, April 5-7. 2022. The engineering community will have the opportunity to vote for the award winner from a panel of finalists before the event. Then, at the conference, the 2022 Engineer of the Year Award will be announced before the keynote on Thursday, April 7.

Each year during DesignCon, we recognize an engineer who is deemed by their peers to be the best of the best in engineering and new product advancements at the chip, board, or system level. The winner will be selected based on leadership, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking brought to the design/test of chips, boards, or systems, with particular attention paid to areas of signal and power integrity. 

Last year, we were very pleased to announce Cathy Liu as the Engineer of the Year. Dr. Liu is active in encouraging young engineers. To that end, she is involved in DesignCon’s Author Mentor Program, where first-time lead paper authors are mentored by experienced, often award-winning, authors from the Technical Program Committee. Other past award winners have been Istvan Novak in 2020, Vishram Pandit in 2019, Mike Li in 2018, Heidi Barnes in 2017, and Eric Bogatin in 2016.

Nominations are open from now until February 15, 2022. To be considered for this award, nominees must be active members of the DesignCon community and cannot be employed by the same company as the winner from the previous year.

Members of the Informa DesignCon team will choose finalists from the nominees, and then the DesignCon and Design News communities will have the opportunity to vote for who will receive the 2022 Award. Watch DesignNews.com for the announcement of the finalists and voting.

The winner of DesignCon’s Engineer of the Year Award will be provided with a $1,000 grant or scholarship to present to the educational institution of his or her choice.

You may nominate multiple people for the award, but please only nominate each person once. Multiple people nominating the same one engineer is encouraged. Feel free to nominate yourself or another engineer.
