Enter Mechanical Engineering Magazine Emerging Technology Awards 2020

Jun 23, 2020

Today, the engineering world is reacting to a crisis of historic proportions. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all facets of engineering—from design and manufacturing to supply chains and shipment deliveries.

Every year, the editors of Mechanical Engineering magazine evaluate dozens of innovations in clean energy, bioengineering, advanced manufacturing, robotics, and pressure technology to select five ascending technologies that have left the research and development phase and now look poised to transform their fields.

In 2020, these technological innovations will be different. Several industries have shifted focus from their regular production lines to pitch in and help create medical technology during the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Mechanical Engineering magazine intends to recognize the innovations that are not only changing industries but also supporting society during COVID-19.

We invite you to submit your innovations in our five respective industry segments.

What inventions have had an incredible impact in 2020? What designs have changed the way we think about engineering? How have they helped society during the COVID-19 crisis?

You tell us. Submit your creations, designs, and innovations to see if you will be one of our 2020 Emerging Technology Award recipients.
