What are you doing for National Engineers Week?

Use the tool below to tell.
IEEE traces its roots to the founding of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers by early industry giants, including Thomas Alva Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. Today’s global IEEE has become a trusted source for fostering technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity as well as the profession.
“For the last 125 years, IEEE has fostered technological innovations that have helped improve the quality of life,” said 2009 IEEE President Dr. John Vig. “We are proud of our heritage and our community where the best in engineering, technology and applied sciences continue to learn, discover and develop new knowledge for the benefit of humanity worldwide.”
IEEE kicked off its celebration onskills to solve it. Submissions will be accepted through 28 February, and winners will be announced in June at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in Los Angeles, Calif., USA. For more information, visit www.ieee125.org/ChangeTheWorld .
To ensure that IEEE members, media, members of the technology industry and the general public have a one-stop resource for everything related to the 125th Anniversary, IEEE has launched an anniversary Web site, www.ieee125.org . The Web site provides up-to-date information on anniversary activities and includes a calendar of events; a press room and multimedia center with videos, photos and message boards; a viral video contest; and a toolkit to help IEEE members plan their own anniversary events.
Ondialogue among media and respected names in the engineering and technology sectors.
The event will also provide a platform to promote IEEE’s Engineering the Future Day, on
These are just a few of the anniversary events planned globally throughout 2009. Visit the anniversary Web site at www.ieee125.org

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
