So You're the New Welding Engineer
AWS
Nov. 11-12, 2014
Atlanta
FABTECH Show — Georgia World Congress Center — Room C302

How to get "up to speed" quickly, how to ask the right questions, how to get the results you need, save money, and stay out of trouble! This two-day conference is for managers, engineers, designers, and others with welding responsibility but limited exposure to or background in welding. The conference focuses on arc welding applications, but the principles have universal applicability. Presentations and discussion are based on the "Application Analysis Worksheet," which was developed to teach a senior college course to engineers about to enter industry, with the objective of helping them develop a path to understand and deal with the challenges they were about to face.

10 skills that can launch a fulfilling manufacturing career
Pioneer Press
The U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings, published recently, contains this eye-popper: Columbia University will charge incoming freshmen $51,000 in tuition and fees for one year. These numbers rise each year, along with the blood pressure of parents who shoulder the financial burden of higher education. No doubt it's standing room only at the financial aid office. There's good news though: Minnesota and U.S. manufacturing companies like mine are investing big-time in education and training for high school graduates who have the right preparation. What's driving this trend? IT, automotive, construction, health care and manufacturing companies have good-paying positions open — but very few qualified applicants.
