Mechatronics - the integration of electrical, mechanical and
computing engineering - symbolizes the evolution of engineering more than
practically any other field. Due to its
integrated engineering nature, mechatronics requires engineers to be very heads
up about the products and systems they design and, in the process, collaborate
with engineering experts in different domains. To achieve long-term
mechatronics success, however, these expert engineers have to become more
knowledgeable about the other engineering fields with which they must interact.
To keep up with these fast-paced design challenges,
engineers need a comprehensive, reliable source for mechatronics information. That source can be found at http://mechzone.designnews.com.
Designed to address the needs of engineers engaged with
electronics, control systems, automation and software, Mechatronics Zone covers everything
from the exciting cross-discipline projects design engineers are involved with
down to the nitty-gritty how-to information.
From news and blogs to videos and in-depth tutorials, Mechatronics Zone is designed to
deliver the integrated engineering information you seek.
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
