It is time again to consider who you think is an engineer who goes above and beyond in the advancement of their field – we want to recognize their achievements as a nominee for the DesignCon Engineer of the Year Award.
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 Istvan Novak as the Engineer of the Year. Among many other achievements, he was recognized for single-handedly helping the test and measurement industry develop completely new instruments and methods of measurement. Other past award winners have been Vishram Pandit in 2019, Mike Li in 2018, Heidi Barnes in 2017, and Eric Bogatin in 2016.
Nominations are open from now until Monday, January 11, 2021. 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 2021 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.
