  • From rocket scientists to financial engineers

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):25 - 28
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (701 KB)

    In the past, rocket scientists-people with advanced degrees in sciences-have been employed in Wall Street to develop new financial products by using financial engineering models. Today, these people are called financial engineers. Engineering schools and mathematics departments in universities are conducting multidisciplinary courses in subjects that apply science and engineering concepts to finan... View full abstract»

    The Victorian engineers displayed considerable ingenuity in overcoming technical problems and successfully manufactured the first carbon filament incandescent lamps. Apart from Swan and Edison, many others shared in this achievement. The materials and scientific knowledge at that time were limited; this article reviews the key steps that were made in manufacture-particularly in producing homogeneo... View full abstract»

    The acoustic emission (AE) technique is concerned with the detection of structure-borne ultrasonic activity that is naturally generated during the operation of all structures, machinery and processes. Most examples of its application involve the purchase and use of commercially available instrumentation by end-users. To satisfy these demands AE instrumentation has evolved into various forms for us... View full abstract»
