For four days in May, the San Jose Center hosted Sensors Expo '98. An estimated 5,000 attendees scoured the booths of 250 exhibitors evaluating the latest in sensors, PLCs, computers, instruments, signal conditioners, and data acquisition equipment. Well-attended conference sessions focused on topics such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and biochemical sensing. And more than 70 companies announced new products or services. Here's a look at some of the best.
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.
