Frontiers of engineering : reports on leading-edge engineering from the 2006 symposium by Symposium on Frontiers of Engineering( )

33 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 8,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents papers on the topics covered at the National Academy of Engineering's 2014 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Every year the symposium brings together 100 outstanding young leaders in engineering to share their cutting-edge research and innovations in selected areas. The 2014 symposium was held September 11-13 at the National Academies Beckman Center in Irvine California. The topics covered at the 2014 symposium were: co-robotics, battery materials, technologies for the heart, and shale gas and oil. The intent of this book is to convey the excitement of this unique meeting and to highlight innovative developments in engineering research and technical work"--Publisher's description
Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Institute of Medicine (U. S.)( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is meant to assist mentors and advisors in understanding how they might help students identify and respond to the challenges of becoming scientists or engineers. The guide--intended for faculty members, teachers, administrators, and others who advise and mentor students of science and engineering--attempts to summarize features that are common to successful mentoring relationships. The goal is to encourage mentoring habits that are in the best interests of both parties in the relationship. The chapters define mentoring, explain the different roles the mentor plays with students (faculty advisor, career advisor, skills consultant, role model), makes recommendations for improving the quality of mentoring, and provides resources. Within each chapter, the text contains steps to improve mentoring, examples of poor and good mentoring, the context of mentoring, a sample of nonacademic careers in science and engineering, and chapter summaries. (Contains 50 references.) (Ask)

The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary

In 1993 the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy issued a report titled "Science, Technology, and the Federal Government: National Goals for a New Era" (the Goals report) which proposed a framework for federal policy to support science and technology. This document can be considered a companion volume to the Goals report and aims at reshaping the current Ph. D. experience and improving students' ability to make good career choices. Topics covered include: the changing context of graduate education; employment of graduate scientists and engineers including current employment conditions, employment trends, employer perspectives, and the changing context of employment; the education of graduate scientists and engineers including the master's experience, the doctoral experience, time to degree, mechanisms of assistance, career information and guidance, the graduate education of women and minority-group students, foreign graduate students, and postdoctoral education; and a discussion of major related issues including the right number of science and engineering Ph. D.s, the issue of foreign students, time to employment, and information and analysis needs. Recommendations, statistical figures, and data tables are included. Seven appendices include statistics on graduate education of scientists and engineers and employment trends among scientists and engineers with graduate degrees. Contains 66 references. (Jrh)
