20 Workshop for Practicing Engineers

21 Why Are Technical Workshops Important for Practicing Engineers? Help develop technical skills in a specific topic to meet the employer's demand or need for job change. Are topics that cannot be addressed in an hour. At least a day is needed to provide the useful info. Provide CEU/PDH for an engineer in a short time Keep members up-to-date in specific technical topics.

22 Organize One Workshop in 2012 R4 will support up to $3K per section –It is preferred that:  Industry Involvement  Time be allocated for membership promotion  Survey to be made on interest of attending members at the end of the workshop.  Good planning  Registration fee substantially be low for members than non-members 14-Apr-15
