    Technical product design, as delivered by an engineer, provides only one part of the complete ready-for-market package needed by manufacturers to launch a new product. Product Development is a rewarding career field requiring unique combinations of technical ingenuity, project management skill, and business/marketing savvy. The ability for engineers and engineering leaders to enter the field is excellent, with the proper preparation. This session will address the product development profession, common career pathways, and how to prepare oneself to compete for opportunities.


    Mr. Lampinen is a product development leader focused on creating and developing products and services that employ technology and other means to meet the talent and work outcome needs of engineering and technology practitioners. He holds a Master of Science degree in technology from Purdue University, as well as a graduate certificate in engineering law and management from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and an interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree in technology and operations from Western Illinois University. Mr. Lampinen holds credentials as a New Product Development Professional, Project Management Professional, and Certified Manufacturing Engineer.
