SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Canon, the world's leading advanced design and manufacturing industry resource, along with Design News, in partnership with Mouser Electronics, has announced Justine Haupt as the Rising Engineering Star. The Rising Engineering Star recognizes engineers who are influencing the design engineering community and stands out as a leader amongst their peers.
"What a great surprise and honor it is to receive an award like this. If I weren't getting paid to work on what I do I would be doing it anyway for fun, so I feel lucky just to have the mindset needed for engineering and science, and equally lucky to be in a position that gives me the chance to use it and maybe even make a contribution to technological progress." - Justine Haupt, Design Engineer, Brookhaven National Laboratory
The engineers who made this year's list are making strides in the field of design engineering and not looking back. Lauren Muskett, Assistant Managing Editor of Design News stated "Rising Engineering Stars allows us to give recognition to engineers who are leaders in their field. The people on this year's list are an impressive group that are thinking outside of the box and excelling in their fields."
"As a company on the forefront of technology, Mouser is excited to support the Rising Stars program to recognize today's brightest up-and-coming engineers," says Kevin Hess, Mouser Electronics' Vice President of Technical Marketing. "Every day, engineers are developing new, life-changing devices. Being the industry's NPI distributor of the newest semiconductors and electronic components, Mouser is helping turn their ideas into the advanced technologies of tomorrow. We applaud their innovation because it's these engineers that will design the future for all of us."
