Mentoring Young Professionals



Arve B. Holt, PE


Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30, 


Abstract:

Today’s young engineers have tools available to them that we “old timers” only dreamed about such as the following:

  1. Real-time and historical plant laboratory data available on his/her desktop computer.
  2. Access to the plant DCS control schematics showing current operating details
  3. Access to powerful process simulation software.
  4. Up-to- date P&ID’s and unit piping/structural drawings available with the click of a mouse.

However, tools alone without hands on field or laboratory experience can lead to some poor decisions. Arve will provide examples and describe ways to help less experienced consultants and service providers to improve their skills and odds of having a successful career.
