Computer and Information Technology [electronic resource]

Anyone who thinks "just working with computers" is the sole focus of the IT industry should realize that working with people is also a major requirement-and a major reward. So says Eric Wellington, dean of the Business and Computer Information System school at Pennsylvania's Delaware County Community College. Wellington offers helpful insight throughout this look at the vocational side of the IT industry, which also features profiles of three IT workers who make comfortable livings after only two years of higher education. Viewers meet Bob, a help desk administrator for Swiss Farms, an innovative retail company; Mike, a system administrator for AWeber Communications; and Joe, a network engineer for Sungard Availability Services. Each describes the job search path that led to a positi [...]

Advanced Manufacturing and Applied Engineering Technology [electronic resource]

Lasers, robotics, computerized design and drafting-are we talking about what goes on at NASA? A particle physics lab? The kind of place that requires a Ph.D. on your resume? No, this is what students can expect to get involved in after only two years of training for a career in advanced manufacturing or applied engineering technology. Tony Girafalco, executive vice president of the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center in Pennsylvania, describes the opportunities a job seeker can look forward to and how to take advantage of them. Viewers will also draw inspiration from three in-the-field success stories. Alan is an advanced machinist and programmer for The Rodon Group after becoming a certified tool and die maker. Anthony, a 3-D CAD draftsperson for Southco, earned an associat [...]

Health Care and Technology [electronic resource]

As executive director of the Life Science Career Alliance, Colleen Hamilton believes that working in health care can "really change people's lives." And although she's well aware of the industry's challenges, Hamilton firmly believes that you don't have to be a doctor or a college-educated researcher to find success in the medical field. This program explores the high-tech side of working in the industry, showing that health care technology jobs are not only fulfilling but also lucrative and challenging. Case studies feature Randy, a certified biomedical equipment technician (or CBET) at New Jersey's Deborah Heart and Lung Center, as well as Luz, a surgical technologist, and Steve, a cath lab technician-both of whom work for Philadelphia's Hahnemann University Hospital. These employe [...]

Portable X-Rays: The Science Squad

Researchers at Tyndall National Institute in Cork are part of a global network of scientists (which includes researchers from Harwell Oxford Campus in the UK and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)) to develop future X-ray technology and pioneer the world’s smallest portable X-ray system. They’re developing a product that will be 20 times smaller and lighter than existing models, and in comparison to existing technology, these new flat panel sources could save local health authorities up to €75,000 per machine. The technology has many applications, portable flat screen (Lap top) X-Ray device for GP surgery – no more going to hospitals, first responders, sports events, dental surgery, security are all possible avenues for the technology.
