At next week’s International Meshing Roundtable (Orlando, 13-16 October) I will have the pleasure and honor of joining an esteemed cast on the Professional Development Panel for students and postdocs. [“One of these panelists is not like the others, one of these panelists doesn’t belong.”]
Some of the issues we panelists have been asked to be prepared to discuss include the reasons for choosing a career in meshing and computational simulation, what type of early career challenges might one face, and how one manages their on-going career.
Similar issues are contemplated by an industry survey being conducted by Lifecycle Insights on Simulation Driven Design. The results collected from this survey will inform us on how simulation (and mesh generation) are employed withing various organizations and point us toward the future of this discipline.
And just for taking time for this 20-minute survey you’ll receive Lifecycle Insights’ 40-page ebook titled The Engineering Manager’s Survival Guide. Even if you’re not a manager (yet) you’ll learn something about how these issues are being addressed in the workplace.
What could be better for a student or postdoc than learning how their future manager thinks?
Full disclosure: Pointwise is sponsoring this survey.
