Many people never think of where our toilet paper comes from, or the plastic packaging around gifts, or the machine-engineered bolts that hold together you new land mower. But the fact is, nearly every consumer good made and sold would have been a mechanical marvel just 100 years ago. While high profile inventors and entrepreneurs . . .
"Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at dimensions between approximately 1 and 100 nanometers, where unique phenomena enable novel applications. " - The United States National Nanotechnology Initiative The history of our species has involved many races. We raced to see who could be first to colonize foreign lands? Which country would be . . .
If you're like most people, there was a time when cartoons were pure magic, when the characters and stories in Disney movies, Saturday morning cartoons, and even soda commercials were enthralling. If you're like many others, your fascination with animated films and games stayed with you, growing more sophisticated but never going away. And if . . .
Robotics is a tremendously versatile, interdisciplinary field that encompasses electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, information engineering, computer science, advanced math, physics (and at times biology and chemistry), artificial intelligence, and more. The core of the field revolves around problem-solving and creating machines that can take the place of humans, and complete tasks that previously humans had . . .
IMAGE SOURCE We use the term security engineering in the collective sense, as it refers to different areas of computer security. This includes cyber security, network security, computer engineering, computer security, and networking. This post will provide some of the graduate degree choices in this field with a brief synopsis of each. This may help . . .
IMAGE SOURCE DegreeQuery has written several articles related to cybersecurity, as well as intelligence analysis (see links below). The lines blur due to the seemingly overlapping functions of different roles associated with cyber security. There isn't even a consensus on the spelling of the word-cyber security. Or is it cybersecurity? It depends on the source. . . .
IMAGE SOURCE An ethical hacker (also known as a white hat hacker) is a security professional. Ethical hackers are adept at determining vulnerabilities and deficiencies in computer systems. These revelations will result in more secure measures to thwart a malicious hacker (or a black hat hacker). A white hat hacker experiments with techniques to see . . .
Actuarial science is a difficult degree program to define. Often referred to as interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or cross-disciplinary, an actuary degree program combines studies in mathematics, business and computer science. Many actuarial degree programs are part of colleges' math departments, but others are offered out of universities’ schools of business. Math Courses for Actuaries Actuary is . . .
When you are good with numbers, pursuing a college degree in math may seem like an obvious choice. What you might not know yet is how important other skills, like computer skills, are for success in math occupations. As you work toward finishing your bachelor’s degree in mathematics, don’t be surprised to find that you . . .
