“I use the Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine to share articles for junior engineers that I think will be informative for them. The magazine helps me to keep abreast of the industry. I appreciate the articles and advertising so I am aware of products I can specify on my projects.” – Senior Electrical Engineer
