Boeing engineers work with superb equipment (Jun, 1955)

Boeing engineers work with superb equipment

This Boeing-designed computer answers in seconds engineering questions that formerly took weeks. It is one of many advanced facilities that help Boeing engineers solve the challenging problems of tomorrow’s aviation, and maintain unsurpassed prestige.

One out of every seven Boeing employees is an engineer, playing a vital role in designing and developing high-performance airplanes, guided missiles and components of the future. There are varied and truly creative opportunities at Boeing right now for mechanical, electrical, civil and aeronautical engineers, and for mathematicians and applied physicists.

Facilities you would work with at Boeing include the world’s most versatile privately owned wind tunnel, and laboratories for research in rocket, ram jet and nuclear power. The new multi-million-dollar Boeing Flight Test Center is the largest installation of its type in the country. It houses the latest electronic data reduction equipment, instrumentation laboratories and a chamber that simulates altitudes up to 100,000 feet.

A fourth of Boeing’s engineers have been with the company more than ten years. In addition to career stability, Boeing engineers find individual recognition through regular merit reviews and through promotions from within the organization.

At Boeing you will work in tightly knit design or project teams with the pick of the country’s engineers. You will help design worthy successors to the B-47 and B-52 global jet bombers, the 707 jet tanker-transport, and the Bomarc IM-99 guided missile. You will join a progressive, solidly growing company that now employs twice as many engineers as at the peak of World War II.

    “Imagine Bob, one day we’ll be able to see naked women on this!”

    That would be quite the Lissajous, Hiru.

    It’s Sineful.

    Should we also mention cosines, or would that be going off on a tangent?

    I wonder if this machine is the BEMAC or related to it?

    ALA: I’d guess it was very closely related. I don’t see any racked mounted Oscopes, though. Looks like they’re setting up or debugging something.

    All that superb equipment and still he can’t get a date for Saturday night.

    Charlene: That’s because he’s working every Saturday night because management won’t let him make system changes during “working” hours.

    Tightly knit teams?

    Well I guess you have not been privy to the blood bath which has taking place. For new job; four are canceled. Some offices are being closed out right.

    Sorry to be such a wet blanket but that is the reality at Boeing during the defense drawdown.
