Anyhow I think clarifying what the forum is actually for would be a good thing
There are over 100 students every semester. I'm not sure how many of them will actively post, but it could be a lot. Would it be good if I directed a horde of freshman CATIA users to this site?
I've already directed a few automation students to this site, but they're posting in the CATIA V5 programming section. I'll go ahead and direct some of the more advanced students here. Hopefully it will help this area grow.
Hey Carbo -
The intent of this "Academic Community" area was to naturally to give academic issues a gathering place. We also see it as an opportunity for students to reach out to potential employers by posting a cover letter and attaching a resume. Being careful here, as COE's Canons of Conduct prohibit recruiting activity, we feel that it is ok for students to reach out.
I think technical Q&A related to V5 Programming belong in that discussion area. However it is feasible that your reply may direct someone to Academia as a resource for smart people and solutions.
Hope I understood your question and answered it to your satisfaction. If not, shout back.
would it be appropriate for potential Masters and PhD students to post research proposals here?
Is it appropriate for companies to post research opportunities and/or job openings here?
