Los ingenieros asturianos crean un observatorio para prevenir la caída de las vocaciones

Los ingenieros asturianos crean un observatorio para prevenir la caída de las vocaciones
// Instituto de la Ingeniería de España

La Escuela Politécnica de Gijón, de la Universidad de Oviedo, y el Colegio de Ingenieros Industriales de Asturias y León han decidido crear un observatorio profesional, con el objetivo de evitar la caída de las vocaciones, que aún no ha llegado a la región pero que ya afecta al resto de España.

La Escuela Politécnica de Ingeniería de Gijón, de la Universidad de Oviedo, y el Colegio de Ingenieros Industriales de Asturias y León han decidido crear un observatorio profesional, cuyo acto oficial de constitución tendrá lugar la próxima semana, informa La Nueva España.

El objetivo es fomentar las vocaciones, dado que en la última década la matrícula en las escuelas de ingeniería de España ha caído un 21,3% y en el campus gijonés no quieren verse devorados por la estadística.

Por eso, aunque mantienen una tendencia alcista respecto a otras titulaciones ya trabajan en frenar la pérdida de alumnos respecto a antes de la crisis, cuando las ingenierías representaban un 22% de todas las matrículas de la Universidad de Oviedo respecto al 20,2% actual.

Naval Air: AH-64s Join The Navy

http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htnavai/articles/20140424.aspx

Army helicopters operating from carriers and other warships is nothing new. It is an accepted practice when there is an emergency and in 1994 the navy took the air wing off one of its nuclear carriers and embarked fifty U.S. Army helicopters (from the 10th Mountain Division) for an operation in Haiti. At that time army AH-64s also operated from the helicopter pad on navy frigates. What the army proposes now is to set up a program to certify army helicopter pilots for regular operations from carriers. This means learning the navy procedures for helicopter operations on carriers and demonstrating the ability to do it the navy way.
