3D printing is a much-hyped technology, with applications ranging from manufactured organs to home production of Print-On-Demand consumer goods purchased over the Internet. Speculation is endlessly entertaining, but setting up shop in an emerging industry takes an engineer. Ed Hebel of Free Thought Designs walks us through why and how he became a 3D printing entrepreneur.
As part of a series profiling key cities to target in a national job search, EngineerJobs.com is taking a long look at one of America's oldest, greatest cities: Boston. With an incredible field of available opportunities and the sixth largest economy in the country, the "Athens of America" is a great place for an engineer to make a name for themselves.
As an engineer, you may work in the most interesting and dangerous situations in the modern world. Fires, explosions, and high-voltage electricity are tools of the trade. Implementing and refining safety procedures reduced workplace fatalities by more than 90% over the last century, but they do still occur.
What happens when accidents happen? What should you expect when you catch fire?
Ask ten people "is an MBA worth it?" and you are likely to get ten different opinions. We talked with Jay Rogers, Vice President of Recruiting for Randstad Engineering, Matt DiGeronimo, Managing Director of Smith Floyd Mergers & Acquisitions and former Navy Nuclear Submarine Officer, and Dennis Chandler, who holds an MBA from Purdue in addition to his MS in Mechanical Engineering to discuss the value of an MBA on an engineering career.
Congratulations, you got an interview! But the sense of accomplishment is short-lived. The next thoughts that come to mind are visions of sweaty palms, dusty suits, and uncomfortably long silent pauses. Before long your brain jumps to anticipating those vague "what-are-they-trying-to-learn-anyway" interview questions. Fortunately, interviewing is a skill, and like any other, it can be learned and improved.
Thin, robust, and language-neutral, Robot Operating System provides a standardized core of OS functions and an extensive library of over 2,000 packages, enabling researchers and engineers to focus on invention instead of re-invention.
Being the heart of your team — the truly indispensable engineer — is a less of a stable state than an ongoing commitment to professional development, integrity, and excellence.
Indispensable engineers build on mastery of their field's core competencies, steadily increasing their stock of knowledge while expanding into customer-facing and commercial skill sets.
The theoretical underpinnings are nearly a century old, and the first solid-state lasers date to the 1950s. Sixty years later, why can't I buy a laser pistol at Walmart?
Natalie Panek is a Missions Systems Engineer and advocate for the advancement of women in STEM fields. She holds degrees in aerospace and mechanical engineering and develops foundational technologies for space development and exploration.
Recently, she was kind enough to spare time for a few questions on space, engineering, and mentoring women in STEM careers.
The modern engineering marketplace is increasingly global. Corporate structures and supply chains span continents, while an increasingly team-centered, networked approach to problem solving places a premium on communication skills. Which second languages are most useful (and lucrative) for today's engineers?
Workers with security clearances earn up to 25% more and dominate the ranks of the top ten percent of wage earners. But what does it mean to be cleared, and how do you qualify? EngineerJobs spoke with Joe Bilheimer, VP of Systems Integration at Pershing Technologies, and Nicole A. Smith, of Tully Rinckey PLLC, about the nuts and bolts of the investigative process.
Unlike other engineering disciplines, software engineering has long been a mixed bag of self-taught, apprenticed, and college-educated professionals. This hodgepodge of engineering backgrounds, however, is something that the NCEES plans to change and standardize with the administration of the new Software Engineering PE exam.
Moving from the trenches to the corner office requires the development of leadership and management skills. These "soft skills" can be intimidating for the more technical-minded among us. On the surface, there's little consensus as to what leadership is, let alone a systematic understanding of the development and application of leadership in the engineering workplace. How do people make the transition?
