  1. If you don't have any other options, you should take it. It's not ideal of course and it might not be a job you'll like but if it's a stepping stone, step on that stone!
  2. Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me find books and articles on metallurgy. I'm looking for methods to harden different types of metals, in particular steel. Thanks in advance.
  3. When is it necessary to harden steel?

    I am testing on 202, 204, 301, 304 and 330.
  4. Greetings everyone, I am currently testing different types of steel (mainly steels of grades 200s and 300s) for work, some of which have been hardened before to improve their mechanical properties. But before I'm starting my project, I was wondering if anyone has a handy spreadsheet or something which says when steel starts to corrode, show signs of wear or which temperatures are critical for the material. And by that I of course mean untreated steels i.e. steels that have not been heat treated or anything. Then, I will compare these results to the steels that have been hardened. Of course I could find out by myself, but it's much easier to run these tests knowing under which conditions you're supposed to test them under. Thanks for any helpful answers in advance! I know it's a long shot, but yeah. Worth a try, ye?
  5. Detailed Knowlodge of Geometry for Solidworks

    Definitely important. I'd say you would have to know how to work with solidworks, too.
  6. Engineering Fees

    How much is your cost of living? And how much do your competetors charge? If your fees are higher than those, you need reasons to justify why.
  7. Greetings!

    Hi! Welcome to the forum

    I really like it so far! The hardest thing for me is the language for sure but everyone has been extremely nice so far. And YES you should come skipping over to Germany, it's amazing. Auf Wiedersehen!
  9. Quantity of Reference Material?

    It definitely depends on the subject but I'd rather take a few more references.
  10. What other degrees are you considering then? Other than MBA? Which I think is quite different...

    Thank you guys!! I think I was already leaning towards "yes" but now I definitely want to make the move! I'm so excited
  12. Job oversees

    After countless job applications and interviews, I have finally got a job offer today. Unfortunately, it's in Germany and I don't know whether or not I should move over there. I got a position in Research and Development at hoecker-polytechnik but to be honest, I have never worked on any of the stuff they make/sell. It feels extremely scary to move to another country, plus I'm not sure if I can do well in my job. Should I keep looking for jobs here or make the move?
