Imagine performing deep-tissue, in vivo functional brain imaging at the level of subcellular resolution Imagine developing tiny implantable electronic devices that could communicate nerve signals to human organs when natural connections have been damaged. Imagine building tools that are powerful enough to begin to map the brain's 1,000,000,000,000,000 neural connections. These mind-bending brain innovations aren't . . .
Materials science is a syncretic discipline hybridizing metallurgy, ceramics, solid-state physics, and chemistry. It is the first example of a new academic discipline emerging by fusion rather than fission - Rustum Roy Materials Technology and Materials Science deal with the discovery, design, and utilization of new solids and other substances. It combines engineering, chemistry, physics, . . .
When you think of feats of engineering, you may think of impressive examples of architecture. In the ancient world, perhaps the Pyramids, of the Coliseum. Likely one of the top few images that comes to mind, however, includes something that flies. Airplanes, helicopters, space shuttles and the like are some of the most superlative-worthy examples . . .
Agriculture is at the heart of what it means to be human. According to most standard accounts of world history and archeology, civilization began when agriculture began. Just because agriculture is potentially the oldest science, however, doesn't mean it's the “same old same old.' Today, agriculture is a blend of crop science, soil science, biology, . . .
Sports Science is the study of how human bodies function during exercise and physical competition. It looks at the factors that impact performance and health in sports setting from a cellular level up to a holistic, total body perspective, and everything in between. Students who want to work as sports science professionals deeply explore psychology, . . .
High salaries. Flexible work settings. High job demand. Helping others. Many jobs fulfill one or more of these values, yet few jobs offer all of them. But the field of physiotherapy is lucrative, flexible, in-demand, and measurably improves people's lives. This health profession has plenty of well-compensated openings, all aimed at helping people live healthier . . .
“The world is the geologist’s great puzzle-box; he stands before it like the child to whom the separate pieces of his puzzle remain a mystery till he detects their relation, and then his fragments grow at once into a connected picture beneath his hand.” — Louis Agassiz A geology degree is associated with strong job . . .
Biochemistry is the science of life. All our life processes - walking, talking, moving, feeding - are essentially chemical reactions. So biochemistry is actually the chemistry of life, and it's supremely interesting. - Aaron Ciechanover Chemistry is the science of energy, matter, and how they interact. It is compelling, universal, and constantly omnipresent in our . . .
