TE Connectivity to Acquire the Creganna Medical Group
Acquisition expands TE’s harsh environment portfolio; establishes TE as a leading supplier to the fast-growing minimally invasive interventional medical device segment.
Empowering Excellence in Engineering at TE Connectivity (TE)
Innovation is best achieved when teams collaborate on building solutions that make things work better. Each day at TE Connectivity (TE), our engineers work closely with our customers to develop new ideas for solving complex connectivity challenges. The results exemplify our vision for empowering co-creation.
Collaborative Problem Solving
Our engineers have a mission: Advance connectivity in customer applications. To achieve this, we work closely with our customers, providing the expertise to transform their aspirations and concepts into designs and prototypes that – through collaborative, hands-on, and often co-located problem solving – result in on-time, to-spec technology built for reliable performance in the harshest environments. Through co-creation, our engineers and our customers are driving innovation across industries and in the next generation of electrical components and sensors.
Building Breakthrough Materials
From ultralight nanotubes to conductive inks, our work is changing how the world connects – down to the molecular level. Through our Advanced Development Labs, we’re exploring technologies several generations out for an increasingly connected world. Learn more about our work in materials science.
Inspiring Excellence in Engineering
"I suspect many of us became engineers because we were curious about how things worked and wanted to make things. At age 7, my curiosity inspired me to learn about how a camera worked, which led me to dismantling my father’s prized Agfa 35mm camera (much to his dismay!). Growing up, my great uncle – a metal working tradesman – taught me how to make simple toys out of wood and metal. That feeling of creating something and making it work always gives me a sense of pure joy. Inspiring students to embrace the intellectual and practical challenges of engineering, then watching them succeed, is also a rewarding experience. So many of the things the world takes for granted every day and so many of the creations that create great technology powerhouse companies are the results of the inventive curiosity of engineers. TE is very fortunate to have engineers engaged with important grassroots engineering initiatives. It is through these collaborative efforts that we as a company are helping young minds embrace engineering and innovation." – Robert Shaddock, EVP and CTO, TE Connectivity
Simona de Silvestro, Andretti Formula E driver and TE brand ambassador, talks about the influences that have inspired her and the experience of working in a highly competitive field where very few of her peers are female.
00:08 --> 00:09
My dad always used to say
00:10 --> 00:13
as a baby I was only quiet
when racing was on TV
00:14 --> 00:16
When I was in the Go-kart
I just knew it was my Happy Place.
00:17 --> 00:18
And that's what I wanted to do.
00:18 --> 00:21
I started racing
when I was six years old.
00:28 --> 00:31
I think I'm a little bit of
a role model nowadays,
00:31 --> 00:35
because I'm racing a Formula E
and am the only female in that series.
00:35 --> 00:39
It takes a lot of effort, a lot of
learning also to what you're doing.
00:39 --> 00:42
Even if sometimes races
don't really go the way you plan
00:42 --> 00:45
you keep at it and keep working on it.
00:47 --> 00:50
I think we have to prove ourselves
a little bit more as a female
00:50 --> 00:52
because it is a male dominated sport
00:52 --> 00:54
and I would say,
if we have a bad result
00:54 --> 00:58
maybe it's easier for people to say,
it happened because it's a girl.
00:58 --> 01:03
I think just people are watching us
a little bit more on our racing career
01:03 --> 01:05
than they would for a boy.
01:05 --> 01:07
And maybe that's
a little bit the tougher part
01:08 --> 01:10
we have to prove ourselves
every time we're out there.
01:11 --> 01:13
I know how to drive a race car fast.
01:13 --> 01:17
When there are races, why shouldn’t I get
the job to be driving the race car?
01:17 --> 01:21
And I think that applies
to pretty much any industry out there.
