the Expanding Field
tation Automatic control, or automation, or data reduction are
all Instrumentation, and offer some of the broadest and most
satisfying careers available to today's engineers and scientists.
Atomic energy, iron and steel, aircraft and automobiles,
chemicals and chinaware, petroleum and electric power are
only a few of the many industries which need instruments.
This need creates permanent opportunities in many of our op-
erations, including research and development, product engi-
neering, industrial engineering, production, inspection, mar-
ket development and customer contacts.
The products with which you would be concerned include
automatic, high-precision instruments for controlling, record-
ing and indicating temperature, chemical concentration, radi-
ation phenomena, frequency and load and many other con-
ditions. For heat-treaters we make furnaces and process
ocs equipment. For the worker in science-whether student or
researcher-we make both automatic and manual laboratory-
type instruments, with which you may already be familiar. '
The Company has about 3000 people-is one of the biggest
in its field, yet is compact enough for you to be able to "follow
the score." Its reputation for progressiveness in industrial
w.7 relations, and for quality of product is world wide.
Wayne L. Besselman, our Coordinator of Technical Em-
ployment, will be on the campus on February 14, 1957 with
information which he will cordially share about our very
modern opportunities and rewards for engineers and scientists.
Your placement bureau will arrange an appointment with Mr.
Besselman, at your request.
