The projects set benchmarks for their industries and showcase the imagination and technical mastery of the organizations that created them.

On Saturday, May 20, Bentley Institute five-star learning achievers will have the opportunity to attend NASCAR’s Nextel All-Star Challenge race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. The day’s activities will include free admission and exclusive access to the track and hospitality tents.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
