2018 Emerging
Technology Awards

Every year, the editors of Mechanical Engineering magazine consider dozens of recent innovations in each of five core engineering fields–clean energy, bioengineering, advanced manufacturing, robotics, and pressure technology. From this search, the editors select five ascending technologies that have left the research and development phase and now look poised to transform their fields. We celebrate those technologies and the innovators behind them with the Emerging Technology Awards. Below you can read about the five winners of the 2018 awards and watch videos showing those achievements in action.

Congratulations to these five innovators and their groundbreaking innovations!
