Wanted: Brightest & Best Young Engineers for DesignCon Panel

In January, DesignCon will be hosting a panel discussion with a focus on “Engineering the Next Generation.”

This conference, which is offered by EBN's parent company UBM Tech, is a prime destination for chip, board, and system engineers — and we decided it was important to make space to hear the voices of the up and coming engineers who will, hopefully, be flooding our industry in the next few years.

We're looking at young guns already committed to engineering and trying to understand their expectations and concerns as the next generation of leaders. So for this DesignCon panel, we'll be speaking with engineering students and recently graduated engineers to get their take on what it is to be an engineer and what education and career challenges and opportunities they see.

In short, we want to explore new ways of getting more youngsters into engineering. To get it right, though, we need your help.

The panel will be on Wednesday, January 29, 2013, and we're planning it out now. If you are or know a recently graduated or student engineer who you believe could address this topic well, let us know. We're also looking for a student mentor and educator to speak on the panel. All panel participates receive complimentary entrance to DesignCon.

    Hailey, when and where it will happen? Is it a virtual online panel discussion or closed group one; No such details. I can found many brilliant young engineering graduates from premier institutes, what about their travel and accommodation arrangements.

    Getting some bright students/graduate engineers from other places to the conference would be an issue, i think. But the event will be holding live at Convention center in Santa Clara, CA. http://www.designcon.com/santaclara/

    Wale, you are right. It's very helpful, if they are able to offer the travel and accommodation expenses through some sponsorship.

    @Jacob, I don't think accomodation or travel expenses would be an issue for students living close to the panel venue. Also, many universities sponsor their students to attend panel discussions, seminars, conferences, etc.

    @Wale, Thanks for sharing the link. I always prefer live events over virtual ones. So it is good that the panel discussion be live. Can you clarify why you said “getting students from other places to attend the conference would be an issue”. I am sure, many students will be able to provide for their expenses with the help of their institutions.
