For $25 you can now get a "personal salary profile," showing how much engineers with education and experience similar to yours make. It's a new service of the Engineering Workforce Commission of the American Association Of Engineering Societies (AAES) based in Washington, DC. Here's how it works. You fill out a form describing your background, your location, and the industry you are in. The Commission sends you back your salary profile. For Design News, the commission did part of a sample profile for a non-supervisory engineer with a bachelors degree and five years experience in the auto industry. Results show that the mean salary for such an engineer across the nation is $50,650. A tenth of the engineers makes above $56,850, a fourth makes above $53,950, and the median is $50,500. The lower fourth makes below $47,700, and the lower tenth below $44,750. You can order a profile form by phoning AAES at (888) 400-2237 ext. 209 or 210.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
