Want to meet up with engineering kin from around the globe? The International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community is hosting its 2005 World Congress on the island of Malta, May 17-20. NAFEMS is the only group dedicated to the international use of engineering technology. Abstracts are now being called for under five main topics: practical applications of simulation, analysis as an engineering tool, technology, education and training, and numerical methods. To submit an abstract or find out more information about the conference visit http://nafems.org/congress.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
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.
