1. Smoke control system testing

Special inspectors must know how to test and commission fire systems, sprinklers, dampers, and alarms. A discussion of relevant codes and standards is included. 

2. Glazing systems: Considerations for the mechanical engineer

Window glazing and shading or louvers have a direct impact on the HVAC load of a building. Mechanical engineers often are tasked with specifying window and shading systems. Know about building envelope, and how it can be managed/altered by window system selection. 

3. Top 10 things to include on your resume

Look at your resume from the interviewer's perspective, not your own. Every hiring manager looks for different things on resumes, but there are many areas of commonality. Your resume is all about you. 

4. Know the intent, changes of NFPA 99-2012

NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code was completely overhauled and rewritten from the 2005 edition to the 2012 edition and was changed from a "standard" to a "code." 

5. How to engineer manufacturing, industrial buildings

Manufacturing and industrial facilities can be particularly complex projects, involving large facilities containing behemoth machinery, hazardous chemicals, and a range of other concerns. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, June 30 to July 6, for articles published within the last two months.
