Based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, engineers have the highest average starting salary at $91,010. In addition to high starting salaries, studies show that the more education an engineer is able to obtain, the higher their salary. However, engineers need to be constant learners in order to stay current. Because they […]
A Professional Engineer (PE) license requires a four-year engineering degree, four or more years of progressive experience under a professional engineer (in most states), and a multidisciplinary understanding of physical and engineering principles as proven through a competency exam. Once you’ve earned a license from your state’s licensure board, you must continually maintain and improve […]
According to the 2018 Skills Gap Study issued by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, it’s time to start worrying about the predicted shortage of engineering talent. In the next decade, 2.4 million manufacturing positions in the U.S. will go unfilled. The continued shortage will lead to a potential loss of $454 billion in economic output. […]
Professional development can help today’s engineers that are looking to improve through educational opportunities and advanced degrees. Licensed engineers are also required to keep up with the latest trends and how they change the industry in order to maintain their various licenses. However, in a recent survey of Machine Design magazine readers, 58 percent said […]

Primary Discussion Topics
- Technical differentiation, benefits and uniqueness of the blockchain, with an emphasis on incremental implementation.
- Developments by the big cloud providers, and the advantages and limitations of traditional databases versus blockchain systems.
- Blockchain as the Internet of Value, including digitizing real assets, digital asset trading, agreements and smart contract deployments.
Upon successful completion of both sessions, attendees will be able to:
- Discern how blockchain is different from other similar technologies and what its unique advantages can provide.
- Identify how blockchain applies to certain business use cases, and why that matters.
- Explain recent enterprise-level innovations powered by blockchain, including use cases in supply chain, power and energy energy, finance and healthcare.
- Recognize where the technology is going next, and ways to stay ahead of curve.
Virtual Event Attendance Benefits
- Explore how blockchain technology can be used to solve problems and create real value for enterprises.
- Review case examples of implementations of blockchain–both in development and in-use–that highlight how businesses incorporate blockchain into their organizational strategies.
- Receive industry-leading knowledge and insights to help make the most informed decisions about blockchain-dependent businesses and operations.
