MARCH 2023 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 57 Remember: "e process is more important than the results. And if you take care of the process, you will get the results." What does winning this competition mean to you as a designer? is is one of the greatest milestones in my career and I am very proud for participating in this world competition. Winning this compe- tition gives me more confidence in designing complex PCBs. I believe that I received the best training and exposure to best practices from my organiza- tion while working on different types of PCBs over the years. It certainly helped me a lot with winning this competition. I would like to thank Tessolve, IPC India, and IPC Interna- tional for helping me participate in the com- petition. I also thank my family members for being a part of my success. What advice would you give to other designers considering entering a design contest like this? Nothing is more expensive than losing an opportunity. I would tell all my fellow design- ers to volunteer themselves and participate in design contests like this. Preparing for such contests itself will make designers learn more about PCB design and it's certainly going to help their careers. I also think IPC contests create a positive vibe among PCB designers to come forward and participate in upcom- ing events. I believe that participating in the contests is more important than winning or losing. DESIGN007 by Kelly Allen, IPC TRAINING MANAGER If you're looking to enhance your learning in elec- tronics manufacturing, IPC can provide a personal- ized approach where you feel engaged and ready to strengthen your on-the-job performance. 2022 was a great year for our instructor-led courses. We have reached a point where our indus- try has embraced the flexibility of online learning. Online lectures are a great option. Why do they work so well? Because students in these classes most often have full-time jobs or other commitments that prevent them from attending in- person instruction. Interestingly, students can still build important and unique profes- sional relationships among their instructors and fellow students because they have opportunities to schedule virtual meetings out- side of class time. IPC encourages students to reach out and discuss assignments, and IPC course instructors are available via email or Zoom to review material for better clarity. Industry experts lead these online courses, which are always recorded so students can revisit and review the lectures on their own time. Here are two courses you can see this year: PCB Design I and II: These course offerings are driven by the high demand, where courses have been near capacity all year. PCB Design for Military and Aerospace Appli- cations: PCB design students have demonstrated great enthusiasm for the course- work and new knowledge of this course.
