In this episode, we talk to Mark Kaiser, S.E., a senior associate at RLG Consulting Engineers, about tilt-up construction and shelter designs. He elaborates on the difference between tilt-up and precast and also talks about what he thinks the future holds for shelter design.
In this episode, we talk to Lucas Marino, D.Eng., PMP, CMRP, a systems engineer and integrated logistics support manager – entrepreneur, and owner of EAST Partnership and MCS, LLC, about life cycle engineering and how it fits into integrated product support.
An in-depth study of the demand for flexible work and independent workers in engineering
and architecture, and the path to building agile, recession-proof talent ecosystems.
In a survey of 587 engineers and architects in the U.S., we examined whether individuals see a viable career path in “mixed hybrid” work — which includes both flexible formats for traditional jobs as well as independent careers — for engineers and architects. The study also examines whether employers are prepared to engage independent professionals under these new conditions.
Highly competitive and forward-thinking companies are not just focused on succeeding with a blended remote and in-person traditional workforce, they are leveraging independent professionals to grow and future-proof their talent supply chains. Yet many find it’s not as simple as ‘turning on’ that channel. Getting the most out of the independent workforce requires attention in multiple domains — from strategy and employer culture, to training and technology.
The research shows that engineering and architecture professionals are ready to work differently, even if their employers haven’t yet made the shift. The key driver behind this trend: A desire to take control of how much they work and for whom.

Founder of The Engineering Management Institute
Engineering Management Institute helps engineering professionals become better managers and leaders through learning transfer so that they are equipped to lead the projects that will shape the world moving forward.
ActionsProve and the Engineering Management Institute collaborated on a survey of engineers and architects to understand how these ongoing, tectonic shifts in the nature of work are affecting the industries that hire engineers and architects, and how individuals in these fields imagine their future careers given these shifts. The study will help employers rethink their current approach to talent sourcing and challenge them to build more strategic, agile, growth-oriented and recession-proof talent ecosystems moving forward.

As focused as you may be as a student, this path to career satisfaction is also a challenging one. Get all the help you need to survive and thrive through your academic career with these tips while on the road to becoming a successful engineer.
As an aspiring engineering student, you will want to prepare properly for the NCEES exams. The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) book will help you to do just that.
Primary engineering topics are addressed in this book, which includes some of the most common equations used in engineering. How these equations are used in systems is also well covered, giving you an edge when writing the exam.
Last month we discussed the collective value of our voices: Speak Up, Take a Chance, Your Voice Matters! Today, as we see unrest in our streets, it is more apparent than ever that we actively seek platforms where holistic, inclusive discussions can be leveraged to solve our challenges. Discussions that start with a sense of belonging for everyone in our communities. Discussions that accept that there is not one single path for the next phase of our solutions. Discussions that lead to policies and programs whose governance and investments sustain a shared vision. This month’s blog is far from an answer to this existential crisis. It is simply a personal reflection on how we, as members of our communities and AEC industry professionals, can approach our roles as integrators.

In this episode, I talk to Jonathan Hard, CEO and President of H2L Solutions, Inc. (H2L). H2L specializes in cyber and information assurance and provides cybersecurity solutions for government and commercial customers. Jonathan talks about cybersecurity, both what individual engineers can do to protect themselves in the world of homeworking and what engineering companies need to consider, and why the company should be working with the United States government.
