  • Authors: Dr. Abhishek Mahesh Appaji & Dr. Ramya Hariharan Quality research is a necessity to prepare ourselves for the surprises hidden in the future. It goes without saying that a focused, superior quality research culture is the need of the hour. In particular, the scope for improving and channelizing academic research in developing countries should be analyzed. This book presents the authors’ viewpoints on the different elements that should be considered to build a competitive academic research culture in developing countries. The chapters in this book focus on the various factors that play a critical role in paving the way for quality research. The authors have also attempted to identify the best practices to improve research culture through funding, publications and collaborations that would aid academic researchers, particularly in developing countries, in building a strong research organization.

  • According to a January 2018 report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average person changes jobs 10 to 15 times (with an average of 12 job changes) during their career. Many workers spend five years, or less, in every job, so they devote more time and energy transitioning from one job to another. To help put you on the right path, this book covers practical and successful strategies you can take in the very early stages of the career transitioning process. Dr. Danielle shares easy-to-use tactics and tools that will help you gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, gaps, opportunities and challenges — and how you can use such things to launch a successful career transition. The book also provides helpful tips and best practices to help the knowledge soak in. By taking a commonsense approach — developed with knowledge, experience and research, think of this book as a pre-planning tool — BEFORE you start writing a resume, or conducting a job search.

  • Having spent her early life half way around the world and in a different culture, author Liang Xi Downey shares with readers the varied set of life and professional experiences on her path. Her college education was in electrical and electronics engineering, but Downey’s career has been much broader than that. She is also experienced in sales, marketing and business development; worked on business and investment strategies for start-ups; in companies with only a few employees; and for major companies, such as IBM and General Motors. Downey came to know IEEE in in the late 1980s, while studying at Tsinghua University in Beijing. She quickly learned that "IEEE" represented technical authority and professional prestige. Downey is very active in both the IEEE Technology Engineering Management Society (TEMS) and IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE). She has had leadership positions in both for some years, on a global level. Her involvement has led to such cutting-edge initiatives as the IEEE Blockchain Future Initiative, and the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Challenge. Member: FREE Non-Member: $9.99

  • This e-book series, and this compilation of e-books, highlights the careers and accomplishments of women engineers. It demonstrates the challenges women face, and have faced, to have a career in engineering. As a profession, we need to encourage more women to pursue careers in technology--and bring their perspectives to the development of products engineers bring forward. We also need to develop the resources to assist them in progressing in their careers, while achieving a balanced life. The latter is something all engineers need to focus on, considering not just their work in technology, but also their families and communities. Member: FREE Non-Member: $9.99

  • In this short volume, author Harry T. Roman encourages all engineers to bring their ideas and accomplishments to the public forum -- to enrich their engineering heritage. He discusses why publishing and speaking about your work is so important to your career. Roman’s original corporate mentors, all IEEE Fellows, often reminded him: If you worked hard to develop something, then sign your name to it, and present it. Be proud of your work.

  • Anyone who has ever wondered about how to find a job, change jobs, get better projects or assignments, manage time, make decisions, gain better work-life balance, or build better relationships at work could benefit from mentoring. And this list does not include all the possible ways a mentor can help. At some point (usually multiple points) in our careers, everyone needs guidance, advice, new skills, or re-directing. That is, we need a mentor. Member: FREE Non-Member: $3.99
  • Pitching is a special kind of public speaking. It requires bravery to stand in front of powerful people and propose something new. Pitching is about stripping down your idea to its barest essentials; and then selling it with conviction, passion and commitment. Author and educator Harry T. Roman wrote this short volume to provide readers some perspective and valuable insights into giving an effective “pitch.” [icon name="file-pdf-o" class="" unprefixed_class=""] Read Sample Member: FREE Non-Member: $4.99
  • Author Karen Pedersen approached writing this e-book as if she were talking to a young friend who is interested in becoming an engineer, or already studying engineering. In these pages, she offers the focal points of her career, and the lessons she has learned during her journey. Many of these lessons discuss how Pedersen handled difficult situations. She recognizes that some would have handled them differently. At the same time, Pedersen’s wish is that some of the thorny situations she ran into would have long disappeared from today’s workplace; however, she unhappily acknowledges that they do still exist. “We are all humans. We can change laws, but we cannot change how people think.” As you read Pedersen’s story, she hopes that you will take what helps you--and leave the other lessons for the next person who will read this book.
