3. Designing higher education facilities

The world is getting more high-tech, and the colleges and universities preparing students to work in an increasingly advanced environment must keep pace. Engineers with expertise on college and university buildings share advice on how to complete such complex projects, with honors. 

4. Commissioning lighting systems

The complexity of lighting design has made commissioning of lighting controls an essential part of projects. Commissioning for the most part is voluntary; however, if an owner is contemplating U.S. Green Building Council LEED certification or if ASHRAE 90.1-2010 compliance is required, commissioning is mandatory. 

5. Reviewing the 2014 NEC

It's time for electrical and power engineers to start reviewing the 2014 edition of the NEC to be prepared for when jurisdictions adopt it as local code. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, January 5-11, for articles published within the last two months.
