Engineers Without Borders Prove Sustainable Solutions Have No Limits

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Jan. 18, 2013)—From a university with a motto of “No Limits,” USC’s Engineers Without Borders are showing how their solutions for sustainable communities truly have no boundaries. Four members from the student organization used their winter break to begin working on a five-year program that will help develop a sustainable water supply system for an organic coffee plantation in La Victoria, Ecuador.

Computer Majors Starting Salaries are the Highest

From this article:

NACE’s January 2013 Salary Survey found that six engineering majors were among the 10 highest-paid at the bachelor’s-degree level.

“This is not surprising since the supply of these graduates is low, but the demand for them is so high,” says Marilyn Mackes, NACE executive director.

At an average starting salary of $70,400, computer engineering was the highest-paid major in 2012. Other engineering majors that were among the top 10 were chemical engineering, ($66,400, second), aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical engineering ($64,000, fourth), mechanical engineering ($62,900, fifth), electrical/electronics and communications engineering ($62,300, sixth), and civil engineering ($57,600, seventh).

Computer science majors earned starting salaries that averaged $64,400, the third most among bachelor’s-degree graduates in 2012. Other non-engineering majors whose average starting salaries were among the highest were finance ($57,300, eighth), construction science/management ($56,600, ninth), and information sciences and systems ($56,100, 10th).

Marine Trace Element Lab seeks Undergrad RA

Know how to program ? Want to study the ocean?

The Marine Trace Element Lab at USC seeks an undergraduate research assistant to help modify Fortran code for an existing Global Climate Ecosystem Model (GCEM). Iron (Fe) is an important nutrient which supports the growth of algae in the ocean. The current ecosystem model includes Fe as an important nutrient in an NPZ (Nutrient, Phytoplankton, Zooplankton) model. This project aims to modify the existing model with an additional tracer representing Fe stable isotopes. Model output will be a map showing Fe isotope distribution in the world oceans, which can be compared to our recent measurements of Fe isotopes.

BlueCross BlueShield Training Program

The IT training program at BlueCross BlueShield of SC (BCBSSC) is called the “Entry-Level Training Program” or ELTP. We started this program in 1997 and it was fashioned to give recent college graduates who had earned their degree in Computer Science or a related field, a career with BCBSSC Information Systems.
