UT-DALLAS / SHPE-DFW EVENT OPENS WINDOW ON FUTURE JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN TECHNOLOGY:
In a joint effort with the University of Texas-Dallas and SHPE-DFW, subject matter experts and researchers from area corporations (eg: Raytheon, Texas Instruments, Verizon, Microsoft and Lennox) and universities (UT-Dallas & SMU) are coming together at this Technical Professional Conference, open to the public, to speak on current cutting edge technologies that are opening up new career opportunities. The Agenda includes predicted solutions in Green Technology and Energy Efficiency, latest advances in Mechanical/Software Engineering and Telecom, cutting-edge Image Processing, Super-Efficient Air Conditioning Systems as well as upcoming Microsoft technologies. The lineup also includes a Super Lean Six Sigma session with Certificate, a workshop on using Social Media as a Competitive Advantage as well as a tour of the UT-Dallas Engineering Facility. A representative from the DFW Airport Board will also be on-hand to accept resumes for current job openings.
This one-day event is being held at the UT-Dallas Campus in Richardson, Texas on April 23, 2010 and targets all professionals and university students in North Texas who are interested in hearing from the front line experts themselves about the state of technology in various fields, in order to make informed decisions affecting their careers now and in the future.

Mario Rotea, PhD, Chairman, Mechanical Engineering, UT Dallas,
"Monitoring and Control of Mechatronic Systems"
- Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanical design, electronics, and control algorithms to create useful products and processes. This talk will review work done by our group to develop mechatronic solutions in the following applications: machine tools, buildings, aircraft generators, and wind turbines. The talk will conclude with a description of the mechanical engineering program at UT Dallas.
Frank Coyle, PhD, Director, Software Engineering Program, SMU,
"Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) -- Are You Ready?"
- Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an approach to developing applications built almost
entirely from existing software services. The basis of SOA is a collection of loosely coupled units of
functionality that are independent of each other and accessible via a well-defined interface.
Each service implements one action, such as filling out an online application or placing an order. For
a developer, this changes the game from one of crafting a complex application from scratch, to one of
weaving together existing independent units and assembling an application.
In the session we will explore the basis for SOA, contrasting it with object-based technologies, and
examining how technologies such as XML, JSON and WSDL play a role in helping developers build

"OPEX-SUPER LEAN (Six Sigma)" [limited seats available in two sessions]
- This workshop will cover: Fundamentals of Super Lean and Six Sigma; Examples of real life applications in various industries; Discussion on ideas on how to apply the Super Lean and Six Sigma fundamentals at the participants' work places; Simulation and competition applying the Super Lean and Six Sigma fundamentals utilizing the participants' creativity.
Alan Bermudez, PhD Candidate, E.E., , Raytheon,
"Super-Resolution in Image Processing"
- Super-resolution is an image processing technique based on processing multiple frames of low resolution images that can be blurred, noisy, and warped, and combined into a single image, the super-resolution image, which has more resolution than any of the sub-images, overcoming the limited spatial resolution of conventional camera systems. |
Super-resolution has uses in both still imagery, and video. The technique can be applied to an individual frame of video, or progressively on each frame, thus increasing the resolution of the entire video. The applications have a variety of uses: producing a high quality image from lower quality webcam images; producing a high-resolution still from a video sequence, such as surveillance cameras; and synthetic zooming on regions of interest, where multiple images can be taken, but hardware limits the spatial resolution of each image; and removal of video/image compression artifacts.
Eric Perez, R&D Principal Engineer, Lennox Commercial,
"Effects of New Technology on HVAC Product Development"
- For Lennox, rapid proof of concept technologies are vital in reducing time to market for new product launches. With the proper tools, a design team can extend the window of opportunity for the use of new technologies the development cycle. The long term effects of implementing this strategy can solidify your position in the market place, and cut unnecessary short-term enhancement programs.
Adrian Valenzuela, Product Marketing Engineer, Texas Instruments,
"Taking Ultra-Low Power to the Masses"
- This session will discuss the successful business strategies used by a highly differentiated, ultra-low power microcontroller division within Texas Instruments that has enabled millions of products through to world by promoting energy efficiency, pushing the boundaries of innovation, and targeting a customer base ignored by the majority of the industry. This session will discuss many of the tactics used to grow the business as well as trends in the industry.
James Snider, MBA Marketing, Renegar Snider Consulting,
"Social Media-The New Competitive Advantage"
- Social Media has emerged as a powerful tool in the hands of millions of consumers, changing the way customers interact with corporations. In recent years, it has become a medium for career advancement. Effective use of social media can assist the professional in keeping current in their industry, attracting the attention of prospective employers and customers, and building their professional status in the industry. The top 5 social media platforms will be discussed with guidelines on when to use each.
Richard Carney, Manager, Network Operations, Verizon,
"Technology Trends in Telecommunications"
- Learn about new trends in the evolving world of telecom! From "app-phones" riding the next wave of advanced wireless networks, to the home network experience with fiber and hybrid copper networks, to the evolution of business needs for cloud computing.
Detra Newhouse, Global Training Consultant, Microsoft Corporation,
"The Next Wave of Microsoft Technology"
- Participants will learn about the next wave of Microsoft technology and applications and how they will effect what and how users can do and how to prepare for it.
