IEST scholarships

03/02/2006


The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) announces that two scholarships will be offered to two full-time students in the educational programs of science or engineering. The winners will be announced at the 52nd annual technical meeting and exposition of IEST, to be held May 7-10, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Eugene Borson Scholarship, in the amount of $500, is offered annually by IEST for the best original technical paper(s) written by a student in a topic related to the environmental sciences in connection with controlled environments, particularly through contamination control and nanotechnologies, in which products and equipment are manufactured, processed, or tested. Eugene (Gene) Borson was a Fellow of IEST, and was a leader in the field of aerospace environmental and contamination control engineering until his death in 2005.

The Park Espenschade Memorial Scholarship, in the amount of $500, is awarded offered by IEST for the best original technical paper(s) written by a student in a topic related to the environmental sciences. “Environmental sciences” is used by IEST in connection with the effects on equipment and machinery of natural, indoor, and extreme environments which may occur under various aerospace, marine, and climatic conditions; and simulating environments to better trace and predict those effects. Park Espenschade was a member of IEST. After his death in 1976, the Park Espenschade Education Fund was established.

To be eligible for consideration for the scholarships, a student must be entering sophomore year or above in an accredited institution, provide proof that he/she is enrolled full-time in an accredited institution, be pursuing a degree with a major or minor in science or engineering, and have attained a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in most recent semester. No more than one paper may be submitted per applicant. The official application form, the paper, and all supplemental material must be sent to IEST by March 15, 2006.

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.
