Many if not most of the PEs in practice do need PDH each year to renew their licenses including me. While it would be nice to aim at the Industrial Engineering factory guys as well as the parts and software guys, the ability to receive PDH throughout the year makes meeting the licensing requiement fairly easy. Maybe I'll learn something in areas outside of the NEC.
Excellent Information Richard. I can certainly agree that my time spent on Design News Daily represents a great learning tool. There have been numerous articles posted that have aided my efforts in finding new vendors and new ways to solve engineering problems. It's a marvelous method of keeping up with technology. IEEE should definitely be commended for their efforts in presenting these classes.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
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.
