    Participation in research opportunities as both an undergraduate and graduate student often provides a wealth of both personal and professional benefits to prospective graduate students, including an increased knowledge base, the ability to work as a part of a team, and humility. This type of hands-on experience is invaluable, but how can undergrade go about finding the research opportunities that... View full abstract»

    The world of engineering has changed significantly over the past ten years due to global competition along with technological advancements. Global competition has forced suppliers in many industries to significantly reduce their cycle time to market because market windows are much shorter now. A study from IBM showed that in a fast moving market, being just three months late can cost over 25% of t... View full abstract»

    While many intellectually and financially rewarding engineering jobs require just a bachelor's degree, graduate education is the key to careers in research and university teaching. Many graduate students- perhaps you are one of them-pursue doctoral studies because they are considering academic careers. Some students are passionate about teaching from the beginning, while others want to find out if... View full abstract»

    One of the first things you will learn as you begin your new career is that your experience base is typically sadly lacking fundamental knowledge for successful completion of some assignments. The lack of experience will come into play for a number of projects and assignments until you find you have spent three to ten years in the development of your career. Suddenly, you find yourself one of thos... View full abstract»

    What do you want to do during your career? If you're thinking about applying to a graduate program, you should know the answer to this question first-or at least have a good sense of your preferred direction. Engineers and engineering students who are considering pursuit of a graduate degree often consider the obvious options: A master of science in engineering (M.S.), a master of business adminis...

    Overpaid executives have become the flogging horse in times of recession, maybe rightly so. Reduction in salaries has been a usual recourse for “cost management” in many companies. It is not known whether these companies analyze why costs are high in the first place. Why are some employees paid a higher premium than the rest? Why are some employees recruited at higher costs while the... View full abstract»

    My first permanent job coming out of college was working for Bell Labs in Naperville, Illinois in 1985. I was a “member of technical staff” and working as a systems engineer for the 5ESSR telephone switch. Specifically, I was assigned to help develop requirements for data features of the 5ESS, such as integrated services digital network (ISDN). View full abstract»

    The concept of smart antennas (also known as adaptive antennas) is not new. However, until recent years, their cost has prevented their use in commercial systems. Smart antennas are antenna arrays with smart signal processing algorithms used to identify spatial signal signature. Smart antenna techniques are used notably in acoustic signal processing, radar, radio telescopes, and cellular systems. View full abstract»
