  • This e-book series has two purposes: to present a high-level overview about women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields, and to provide the first-hand accounts of the professional journeys of some notable contemporary female engineers. When reading Book 1 (Vol. 1), readers should note that data representing a global perspective on the issue of women in STEM fields is included, wherever available. Employment, education and statistical data are most readily available and detailed for the United States, so many of the statistics and trends identified pertain strictly to the United States. This volume is not meant to be a comprehensive study. The topic of women in the workforce--particularly the STEM workforce--is complex, varied, and perhaps best appreciated when studied from multiple vantage points. Member: FREE Non-Member: $9.99
  • The 2014 USA Employment Survey was conducted to develop a better understanding of the dilemma of unemployment among IEEE's U.S. members, by conducting a survey of engineers who were unemployed at some point during the 2013 IEEE membership year. We surveyed U.S. IEEE members who reported being unemployed during 2013, using a self-administered, online questionnaire. The results were consistent with previous years' more than half of those surveyed had not been re-employed. Member: $7.99 Non-Member: $9.99

  • IEEE-USA has conducted surveys of the compensation of IEEE's U.S. members since 1972. Separate surveys focusing on the compensation of consultants were implemented in 2002, and with the exception of 2003, have been conducted annually, ever since. Using the IEEE membership database, 14,098 IEEE members identified as consultants were emailed an invitation to complete the 2013 Consultants Fee Survey, in the spring of 2013; 1,355 respondents participated in the survey (response rate = 9.6%). All findings in this report represent only those who were identified as self-employed consultants; defined as the 848 individuals who indicated that 50% or more of their consulting hours came from working independently, with partners, or incorporated (from herein referred to as consultants).

  • The current condition of the US electric grid is inadequate and requires updates to be able to handle a changing landscape of energy generation and use. Efforts to shift to a smart grid have led to the collection of immense amounts of data. Currently, this data is not being used as effectively as it could be. Grid management is based on powerful computer models that use past behavior to predict current conditions on the grid. The ultimate goal of the smart grid is to have real-time data collection and analytic capabilities. In this e-book, author Alexandra Nilles concludes that industry-developed standards, combined with public guidance and funding for sensitive issues such as privacy and cybersecurity, are the best tools to use as the smart grid develops.

  • In his review of career management, author Dr. Siri Varadan presents a useful and imaginative insight into how young engineers can begin to address career aspirations. Using his own career as a metaphor, he explores how career advancement is a function of opportunity, meeting preparation and readiness. In this context, he is able to illustrate how taking certain proactive steps, selecting a mentor, staying connected with industry events and colleagues, continuing to pursue personal development opportunities, can intersect with, and even create, key opportunities to pursue career advancement. By following his career as it unfolded to date, he is also able to incorporate aspects of career that may not be evident to young engineers beginning in the workforce. For example, Varadan examines the unique challenges created by family obligations relative to career, how do you balance both to be successful with both aspects of life'personal and professional? In doing so, Dr. Varadan has personalized learning to help illustrate the nuances of decision-making in the context of optionality. Member: FREE Non-Member: $9.99
  • At some point in their careers, engineers may discover what is known as the 'dual ladder' in the corporate structure, the choices being to continue in the technical project aspects of their career, or the opportunity of moving into the management side of their careers. In many corporations, once the choice is made, there is no re-direct; it is either technical or management from that point forward. There are, however, those corporations which provide a true dual ladder structure. In those instances, the person involved can move back and forth, from technical to manage-ment and back again, depending on the needs of the individual or corp-oration. While the choice may seem easy, there are a number of aspects of each path that one should consider, prior to making a decision on any given opportunity. The two authors of this e-book chose the Dual Career Ladder path during their long-term careers at IBM. Member: FREE Non-Member: $9.99
