  2. We Love Engineers

Engineers are interesting creatures.

When they find a complicated problem,
they jump on it with glee.
When they're interested in something,
they show extraordinary concentration.
Even when their long-standing
experiments fail,
they smile, dreaming of the day
they can make it happen.
Some make fun of them for being reckless.
Some even ridicule them for being crazy.

But, we are crazy about you, crazy engineers.
We want to take part in your passion.
We want to help you find answers
to the difficult questions.
Because there are people
who blaze their own trails,
we can find new discoveries once again.
Your passion lights up the world once more.




360 Series High-Performance Light Fixture Utilizing Laser Technology

Ryan DeBoe
Project Engineer, Aftermarket New Product Development
Rigid Industries

Creating comfortable and enjoyable experiences while enhancing safety in harsh environments.We at Rigid Industries are a manufacturer of a variety of automotive lighting solutions. We provide a variety of lighting products for both on-road and off-road applications in a wide variety of markets, including powersports, construction, military, and emergency response. As a project engineer, I am involved in the entire process from conceptualizing new product ideas and technical design to introduction and production. In addition to my duties as an engineer, which include mechanical, optical, and electrical design, as well as product testing and verification, I am also responsible for a wide variety of management tasks. Part of that responsibility is choosing contractors and participating in sales and marketing activities. Although there are many challenges, I find it rewarding to be involved in all processes, from the idea of a product to when it arrives in our customers' hands.


Enerezza®, the World's First* SemiSolid™ Battery Residential Energy Storage System

Sarah Cole
Manager, Advanced Process Development
24M Technologies

24M Technologies, Inc. (24M) is working with Kyocera to develop the technology and mass-produce battery storage products using 24M’s SemiSolid™ manufacturing platform. 24M’s SemiSolid™ has a simpler manufacturing process than conventional batteries, meaning it is less expensive. But, that's not all. It has higher energy density, improved safety, and a longer service life. It is the first of its kind,* and its potential applications for storing electricity are drawing a lot of attention. We have been developing products together with manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as with partners who provide wind- and solar-powered energy management systems. As manager of the advanced process development team, I am responsible for improving existing technologies and production lines as well as spearheading new innovations. I am constantly trying to see what we can do to improve quality, not only for the issues at hand, but also for the environment in which the next generation of products will be developed.


“Energy Harvesting Smart Buoy" to Acquire Ocean Data Sustainably

Sakaguchi Daisaku
Organization for Marine Science and Technology, Vice-Director / Professor
Nagasaki University

Protecting the world's oceans through the visualization of ocean conditions to benefit not only the marine industry, but all of society.We at Nagasaki University are currently working with Kyocera to develop an Energy Harvesting Smart Buoy. This system can measure and communicate ocean data while generating electricity from tidal power to sustainably collect ocean data necessary for fisheries, such as changes in seawater temperature, ocean currents, and the amount of microplastics. The main goal of the project is
