IPC’s Emerging Engineer program provides professionals early in their careers an opportunity to learn from industry mentors about IPC Standards development, and to obtain education and training for professional development.

Mentors receive:

  • Experiences and connections for career enrichment.

  • Recognition for program participant and his/her company – industry awareness.
  • Registration to recognition luncheons.

“The IPC Emerging Engineer program gives new engineers a leg up early in their careers,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “And it enables industry experts a chance to share their knowledge and expertise with the next generation of engineers. We’re all working together to make our industry stronger.”

IPC is now accepting applications for the 2020 Emerging Engineer program and a limited number of university student positions are available.
