The Engineering Leaders Under 40 program* recognizes manufacturing professionals under the age of 40 who are making a significant contribution to their plant’s success, and to the control engineering and/or plant engineering professions. Our research shows that finding, training and retaining workers is the biggest issue facing manufacturing today.
The goal of the Engineering Leaders Under 40 program is to call attention to these successful young engineers in manufacturing and to show how manufacturers are recruiting and developing the next generation of manufacturing professionals.
