DeAnna Robear

DeAnna Robear

Mechanical engineering alumna DeAnna Robear ’15, a partner enablement engineer at PTC, has been named as one of the 10 Pioneers 2018 by Connected World magazine. As Connected World describes this honor, the recipients are trailblazers, innovators, and pioneers representing “10 technology leaders under 40 who help pave the way for a more connected society.” Robear’s interest in industrial consumer products such as cars and airplanes evolved into a mechanical engineering degree and, eventually, a career in the Internet of Things, all fueled by a weekend wearable electronics tutorial offered by Professor David McLaughlin of our Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
