Technology is at the forefront of the engineering industry, as businesses race to be leaders in innovation and offer the latest, cutting-edge products.
With the power to transform the industry, technology introduces innovative ideas, makes jobs safer and more efficient, and unlocks key insights with data.
Because of this, design engineers continually strive to foresee upcoming trends and capitalize on current leading trends.
Below, take a look at five top technology trends design engineers should keep top of mind.
