UGS recently decided to support the chip for Intel®'s new Xeon™ processor-based platform designed for workstations. The Intel Xeon processor-based platform has greater application performance and system bandwidth, and eliminates graphic I/O bottlenecks. UGS and Intel worked together to be sure that UGS' NX2 CAD/CAM/CAE program as well as Parasolid V16.0 would support the Intel Xeon-based workstations as 32-bit applications. The chip also features 64-bit extensions and an 800 MHz system bus. For more info, go to www.ugs.com.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
