For the second year, Design News (a sister brand to EE Times) is on the hunt for engineers who are influencing or have the potential to influence the design engineering community. We are looking for engineers who are ahead of the trends, significantly performing in the industry, and outperforming his or her peers. If you know an engineer playing a vital role in a small start up or who has been recognized as a high performer, he or she could make our list.
The nominees will appear online and in Design News' January 2014 print issue. The top innovator, chosen by Design News editors and their esteemed Advisory Board, will be announced during a live ceremony at the MD&M West show in February in Anaheim, Calif.
Last year's winner, Punya Prakash, was a standout as a top rising engineering star due to her hard work and proven track record as a leader within her company and her community. Prakash, an applications engineer, is leading the Singlecore Processor teamís extensive smart home initiative with Texas Instruments (TI), where she is innovating home and building automation.
If you know someone who is ahead of the trends and significantly performing in the industry, please nominate them to be included in Design News' list.
Deadline for nominations is November 1, 2013.
