2010 is here and I can't wait to see what this new year brings. Technology gets better with each passing day, and the imaginations of our future engineers will thrive with time and technological advances.
I'm not an engineer myself, but at times I wish that I was. Having the knowledge and skills to invent the imaginable and unimaginable is a ticket to one of the 20 highest paying jobs (www.controlglobal.com/HighPayingJobs.html)—jobs that are amazing.
Give Energy Management a Thought!
Gain efficiency and save energy by benchmarking.
Data Sharing for Tracking and Tracing

ControlGlobal.com also has a knowledge center that focuses on using advanced measurement and control techniques to design, develop, and improve products and technologies that result in environmental and economic benefits. Visit www.controlglobal.com/knowledge_centers/ni/index.html for technical articles, white papers, webcasts and other green resources.
Now, I wonder what engineers will show us this year? What automation processes, software and machines are future engineers designing?

For those who believe a career in engineering wouldn't be as fun as the Australian island care-taker job (http://bit.ly/5vv3Ix), or as inspiring as being a scientist discovering cures for illnesses, or who think engineering is a "guys only" field, check www.engineeryourlife.org. Meet the "Nerd Girls" and watch videos of these young engineers as they brainstorm, design and produce their own devices. Inspiring these young engineers is how we can have many years full of the next technologies we can't live without.
I can't wait to see what engineers have in store for us this year. One thing for sure, no matter how long it takes, these future engineers will come up with inventions I'm sure I will love, I'll be here waiting for their creative and advanced technologies.
