The subjects were a mix of electrical, mechanical, civil, and computer engineering students and computer science student ...
  See Part 1 here. Now, I go back to my college days...   Several Printed Engineering Magazine (PEM) subscriptions were a requirement for all those in my engineering college. Issues were shipped directly to me. Then again, it wouldn’t have mattered since issues were sprinkled over the campus like they were spread to the four compass crosswinds. I would read through the whole magazine, eventually. It became an obsession of mine for some time. I held issues in high regard, but ot ...

If you are reading this, you know how important PEMs is in the engineering media world.   Engineering has always been an industry where each generation builds on the shoulders of the ones before it. Let’s see ...
