    One of the most important career steps an engineer can take is the preparation of a complete and effective resume. When it is used in the search for a job, the resume must be viewed as a communication tool. That is, it must satisfy the needs of employment managers and engineering managers who see hundreds of resumes a month. View full abstract»

    Students can employ many strategies to finance their higher education, including cost reduction, academic planning, and direct financial aid. We will not discuss cost reduction here, for it is subject enough for a separate article. It is sufficient to state that cost-reduction decisions often have farreaching implications, and the choices students make in this area reflect personal lifestyle and s... View full abstract»

    Of two equally competent professional engineers, the one who can write well has an unbeatable advantage. If he publishes two or three papers on a relatively narrow subject, he gets national recognition as an expert, and his silent colleague does not, even if he knows just as much about the subject. In fact, the writer is bound to get preferential treatment from his immediate superiors, even though... View full abstract»

    At the touch of a button — and by means of two integrated electronic circuits — Kodak's latest contribution to the world of amateur photography analyzes the scene, sets the proper exposure, activates the built-in flash, takes the picture, advances the film, and recharges the flash — all in a split second's time. Known as the Kodak disc camera, the new system is considered the ... View full abstract»
