Eng-Tips.com is a group of growing online forums where engineers can ask work-related questions of other, experienced professionals in their field
DETROIT, MI -- Tecumseh Group, Inc., today formally announced its Eng-Tips Forums (http://www.eng-tips.com
), which are independent online discussion groups designed to help engineers of all disciplines solve work-related problems. Eng-Tips Forums are free and confidential discussions on any subject, product, or strategy within the engineering discipline. Membership in the forums is in the hundreds of thousands, with new members signing on daily.
"Engineers, like other professionals, need a 'safe,' non-political place to go to solve technical issues that arise daily at work," said Dave Murphy, president of Tecumseh Group. "On Eng-Tips, you can post a question within a particular discipline, and members respond with their collective experience to solve the problem. It's like having your own staff of qualified experts on call."
"Posts are confidential, so no one ever gets fired for seeking advice on our site," Dave added. "Also, members aren't bothered by unsolicited posts from marketers, since vendors and recruiters must identify themselves, and forums are member-policed. Selling and recruiting are prohibited within forums."About Eng-Tips.
Eng-Tips comprises hundreds of forums categorized by every engineering discipline, as well as by topic. Currently the 10 most popular forums are listed under mechanical engineers, structural engineers, storm/flood engineering, underwriter laboratories, electrical/electronic engineers, circuit engineering, piping and fluid mechanics, ACI (concrete), engine and fuel engineering, and chemical engineering.
Eng-Tips Forums make discussion easy for members and visitors. If a professional is interested in a particular topic, he or she can either search for a forum from the home page or follow the path within the professional category or topic.
Members can remain anonymous, which sets Eng-Tips apart from newsgroups and other online forums. Professionals who want to customize forum selections and be instantly notified of posts to their forums can register by simply submitting their e-mail address.
Unlike other online forums that have a high "noise level" from extraneous chatter, marketer intrusions, or "flaming" (criticizing) other people, Eng-Tips members enjoy a very focused and responsible level of discussion. Members can "Red-Flag" posts from vendor companies and recruiters, and site administrators are diligent in taking action.
Other unique Eng-Tips features include:
