I just got this note from the IEEE Communications Society and wanted to pass the news on. The next IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET®) Certification Exam will be held from 2 – 29 October 2011 at Prometric testing centers located worldwide.
To learn more abut the IEEE Wireless Communications Professional® (IEEE WCP) credential, head here. Applications are due by 16 September 2011.
For those of you pursuing the certification, good luck! For those of you that have it, what do you think of the process? Has it helped you acquire a job or advance your career?

IEEE ComSoc Training is offering a one-day virtual course on Wednesday, 3 August 2011. “LTE for the Wireless Engineering Practitioner: Fundamentals & Applications” taught by Daniel Wong, president of Daniel Wireless, LLC. The course will focus on end-to-end LTE systems including access networks, wireless service architectures and policies, anticipated network management changes and the implications of moving toward all IP-based networks. The full-day course is available to IEEE/ComSoc members for $225 and to non-members for $275. Individuals who complete the course will be awarded 0.6 IEEE Continuing Education Units. Registration ends 27 July 2011. For more information visit www.comsoc.org/training.
IEEE ComSoc next five-day “Virtual Intensive Course on Wireless Communications” will be held 22-26 August 2011. Recommended for professionals with an engineering or technology background as well as individuals with an appreciation for wireless engineering practices, this course is specifically designed to provide a comprehensive overview of network operations, the latest technological implementations and how different facets of wireless communications fit into overall system designs. Visit www.comsoc.org/training for additional up-to-date course and registration information.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
