Engineering Education’s Weed Out Approach and the STEM Shortfall

Should engineering education change in the context of the STEM shortfall? Specifically, I want to talk about weed-out classes. I remember when I attended the University of Kentucky back in the early 90s. There was a physics 231/232 class that was standard Newtonian physics for mechanical engineers.

The Failure Rate of Product Development

Today, there are many stumbling blocks in product development. At times, it can feel like your company is failing. But, based on our research, you’re not alone. In this video, we review a finding that gives insight into the success and failure rates of product development.

Mentor’s System Vision

This post provides an overview of Mentor’s System Vision, a 1D modeling and simulation tool for analog mixed signal systems.

Collaboration on Board Systems Design: Is It An Opportunity?

Is there an opportunity for more electrical-mechanical collaboration within board systems design? Let’s make sure we’re on the same page before we go any further. First off, what’s involved? We’re talking about taking the board layout in ECAD and communicating that to the 3D assembly in the mechanical application. Why is that needed, and what’s
