• High-resolution (300 dpi) product photo, 3D CAD model drawing, and companion data sheet.

• A list of ideal applications for the product.

• Details on any patents.

• Description of the product’s purpose. What problem does it solve? How does it improve on older products/what it evolved from? 

• Information on the development process. Was any type of customer input or Beta testing involved? 

• A description of the design aspects to the product. What were the engineering tools or processes used in the development?

Design World’s Women in Engineering Issue

In November, Design World will celebrate some of the most inspiring women in the design engineering space. Our editorial team will highlight female engineers who are positively influencing design technology or engineering practices. 

Nominations are due August 10th. Candidates must work for Original Equipment Manufacturers in an electrical or mechanical engineering design role. Winners will exhibit expertise in their fields, show leadership in elevating their industry, and have a passion for ushering in change. 

The winners will be honored at an awards presentation in conjunction with DeviceTalks West in Orange County, California on December 11, 2018. DeviceTalks is the premier industry event for the medtech community, fostering the exchange of ideas, insight and technology among the pioneers of the medical technology industry and the engineering behind it.

Fully 50% of the gross proceeds from this issue will be donated to charity or scholarship relating to STEM/STEAM work. Winners will be invited onto a steering committee to advise on next year’s nominations and to select the donation recipient.
