  • The first four of IEEE-USA's award-winning Women in Engineering E-Books are now available in a specially priced first compilation volume. Introduced in 2014, the WIE e-book series has a distinct purpose: to help narrow the gender gap between the numbers of men and women in engineering, by providing the stories of female role models at various phases of their careers. Except for the first volume, which is an overview of women in STEM occupations, each book is a first-hand account of how a notable contemporary woman engineer built her career.

  • Through 15 April, IEEE members can download a free copy of this eBook by adding it to your cart and using promo code MARFREE18 at checkout. In Book 5 of IEEE-USA's Women in Engineering E-Book Series, author Melissa Lau's story isn't about grand inventions that will bring about the next Industrial Revolution. It doesn't even have a science award for your usual World-Saving Development or Life-Changing Design. Rather her story points to the little triumphs in an engineer's life that make the journey worth the time, the effort and the wanderings that get us there. There is no fanfare or prestige, and barely anyone understands what engineers talk about at a cocktail party (for those of us brave enough to be found in one). But an ordinary life can be just as remarkable. Member: $0.00 Non-Member: $9.99

  • 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

  • ENERGY underlies three converging challenges facing the United States today: economic prosperity, security, and the environment. Electricity continues to be a key enabler in addressing these challenges, but it has come under substantial pressures to respond to environmental concerns, deal with uncertainties in both local and global energy supplies, and accommodate the rapid evolution of new generation sources and technology options available to its users. The major challenge is to develop solutions which take into account changing energy supply markets as well as financial resource availability. Member: $0.00 Non-Member: $0.00
  • 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).

  • In the past 10 years, Internet adoption outside the Western world has moved at a rapid pace, and there are documented instances of cultural, social, and economic difficulties owed to the Internet. Nations like China, whose number of Internet users now outnumbers the entire United States' population, advocate for a more state-centered model of control over the Internet. In the eyes of the United States and liked-minded developed nations, this increasing push for state control represents a significant threat to the Internet's continued social, economic, and political impact. Many have rallied to oppose what they see as an attempted authoritarian takeover of the Internet. In this e-book, author Lucas Wadman advocates for a threefold solution: the creation of a centralized body of Cyber Affairs within the U.S. Government, further decentralization and representation of civil society in Internet governance matters, and reform of legislation that permits overreaching electronic surveillance activities.

  • U.S. supplies of nonrenewable energy resources (e.g. coal, oil, and natural gas) are quickly decreasing, and a resulting climate change due to carbon emissions is affecting the world's natural conditions. Shifting our dependence to renewable energy systems, reinventing our lifestyles and technologies to be more efficient, and improving and strengthening our energy infrastructure are all essential steps to avoid a globally-scaled energy crisis. In this e-book, author Tuner Cotterman provides a review of the gains afforded by the various storage technologies currently available, and recommends a strategy for effective growth in terms of energy infrastructure development and implementation of storage systems through public and private partnerships. Federal and state governments can play a pivotal role in applying legislative frameworks, streamlining regulatory requirements, and incentivizing continued investment. Private industry must invest in storage technologies and the grid infrastructure to remain competitive in a global marketplace. Additionally, through increased public awareness, American consumers will see benefits in terms of energy security, energy conservation, and clean energy developments.

  • 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
