Want to prepare yourself for the future? Master the computer, advises Brent Anderson, Lockheed Martin engineer. And learn how to write and understand computer languages. "More and more engineers are using software packages as tools," he says, and they will have to be customized for individual disciplines and applications.
System design will be more prevalent as software tools start doing a lot of the engineering tasks and jobs in the future, says Anderson. Companies will need an integrator or systems engineer to review software generated, and incorporate specific functions.
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
