By Lindsay Hock – The foundational knowledge engineers need to succeed evolves slowly, but the applied science and data they need to access on a day-to-day basis changes constantly.
How engineers find and assimilate knowledge, as well as how they model problems around those data, has evolved to employ more computationally intensive techniques.
Digitization and indexing of information has democratized broader classes of information, enabling engineers to identify useful trends without having to read through text.
“The ability to carry your research platform from one location to another, without discontinuity in your thought process, helps accelerate problem resolution,” says Knovel. more> http://tinyurl.com/phjehot
