    To learn more about the Women in Engineering Panel, please visit: esc-boston.com/breakfast-session

    “With the every-increasing discussions about the lack of trained engineers, technologists and scientists in the US, it is increasingly important that we actively engage and encourage 51% of the population, namely women, to pursue STEM fields. I am quite excited to join the Women in Engineering panel at ESC Boston, on Thursday. May 4, 2017, starting at 7:30am, to explore challenges and opportunities to inspire, engage and advance women in engineering,” said Nita Patel, systems & software engineering director, L-3 Warrior Systems, and founder & chair, IEEE WIE ILC.

    UBM logo

    Santa Monica, CA (March 9, 2017) – UBM Advanced Design and Manufacturing is thrilled to announce that Co-Founder of Apple Inc. and Chief Scientist at Primary Data, Steve “Woz” Wozniak, will take the stage on June 13th at 12 pm local time for its keynote event: A Conversation with Steve Wozniak at its New York trade show and conference. At the East Coast’s largest advanced design and manufacturing event, the cult icon will discuss a range of topics that span his experience at Apple, as well as today’s leading tech trends such as robotics, IOT, wearables, and Big Data, among others.

    UBM’s Advanced Design and Manufacturing event will take place on June 13-15, 2017, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY. The event is comprised of six expos presented alongside one another, including Automation Technology Expo (ATX) East, Design & Manufacturing (D&M) Atlantic, EASTPACK, Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East, PLASTEC East, and Quality Expo.

    “I am really looking forward to speaking at UBM’s annual Advanced Design and Manufacturing event in New York. This seems to be the conference when it comes to innovation and design within the manufacturing field,” said Wozniak. “During my session on June 13th, I look forward to offering insight into emerging trends in technology and how those may impact design and manufacturing.”

    Meet the Keynote: Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder, Apple Inc. and Chief Scientist at Primary Data
    Steve Wozniak has helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products the Apple I and II. He began his career in 1976, when he and Steve Jobs famously founded Apple Computer Inc. with Wozniak’s Apple I personal computer. The following year, Wozniak introduced his Apple II personal computer, which was integral in launching the personal computer industry. In 1985, Wozniak was awarded the National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States for his achievements at Apple, which is considered the highest honor bestowed on America’s leading innovators.

    Wozniak has been a Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than thirty years, and has been involved in various business and philanthropic ventures, focusing primarily on computer capabilities in schools and stressing hands-on learning. Making significant investments of both his time and resources in education, he adopted the Los Gatos School District, providing students and teachers with hands-on teaching and donations of state-of-the-art technology equipment. He also founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and was the founding sponsor of the Tech Museum, Silicon Valley Ballet, and Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. In 2014, he was awarded the Hoover Medal, a prestigious honor given for “outstanding extra-career services by engineers to humanity,” and was inducted into the IndustryWeek Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

    Today, Wozniak serves as Chief Scientist at Primary Data and is a published author with the release of his New York Times best-selling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon by Norton Publishing.

    “It is an honor to have the prestigious thinker and innovator Steve Wozniak headlining our New York event as the Keynote Speaker. 2017 continues to be a strong year for education and content at UBM’s Advanced Design and Manufacturing shows that began with TV personality Jamie Hyneman and automotive industry visionary JB Straubel earlier this year. We look forward to continuing this trend throughout 2017 with the exciting addition of Wozniak to the lineup,” said Nina Brown, Vice President, Events, UBM.

    Using industry-driven content and top speakers, UBM has connected the world’s leading suppliers with engineers, executives and key decision makers at its shows for more than 30 years.
