IPC Emerging Engineer Program

IPC launched the Emerging Engineer program in 2016 to provide professionals early in their careers an opportunity to learn from the dedicated industry volunteers who participate in standards development.  Through this sharing, our valued leaders will mentor IPC Emerging Engineers and provide them with the tools they need to continue standards development for many years to come.  As Mentors they will also have the opportunity to ensure their projects carry forward while they help build the future.
