The typical holder of a Ph.D in engineering was paid $70,000 in 1995--more than the median salary for doctorates in major science categories. So finds a report by the National Research Council. The study profiles demographic and employment trends of doctorate-level engineers and scientists in the U.S. The median salary for all science and engineering Ph.Ds was $60,200. The top non-engineering categories were chemistry and physics/astronomy, both at $68,000. Doctorate holders working in the private for-profit sector had the highest median annual salary at $75,000. The figure for those working in educational institutions was $52,000. Engineers did well, too, in patent applications, a measure of productivity. A fourth of the engineering Ph.Ds had applied for patents; 72% got them. The application mark was surpassed only by the 31% submitted by chemistry Ph.Ds.

Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
