GM plans to hire 1,000 engineers in the coming year and Chrysler will hire 1,000 in the next four months, according to various media reports.
GM’s new hires will work on development of electric cars and hybrids, including the soon-to-be-released Chevy Volt, the company says. Chrysler’s new engineers are expected to do small- and mid-sized car development.
Quoted in an article in The Wall Street Journal, GM chief executive Dan Akerson said that battery-powered cars could drive “300, 400 or 500 miles within five, ten or 15 years. We have to stay invested in this technology because we’re not sure where it’s going to go.”
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
