Do you enjoy taking things apart to see how you can make them even better? Do you care about creations that not only do a job, but help people or the planet? What if we told you there's a degree that studies just this? Well there is, and it's called environmental engineering. Environmental engineering is . . .
"The business of biomedical research is mostly about failure. Few projects we commission will ultimately result in success. But every study we do contributes to the body of knowledge that brings science and society closer to a solution" - Kenneth Frazier We've been struggling with healing ourselves and extending our lives since our species became . . .
Engineering or technology is all about using the power of science to make life better for people, to reduce cost, to improve comfort, to improve productivity, etc. - N. R. Narayana Murthy Nuclear engineering tackles the splitting or combination of atomic nuclei to many different ends. These include but aren't limited to medical applications (think . . .
My knowledge of electrical subjects was not acquired in a methodical manner but was picked up from such books as I could get hold of and from such experiments as I could make with my own hands - Alexander Graham Bell Unlike Bell, today people have the opportunity to take a systematic, proven approach in . . .
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 . . .
A graduate degree in cyber security or cybersecurity (used interchangeably) engineering is another on the list of qualifications to enter the explosive job market in this field. The number for 2019 expects to be north of $124 billion. This burgeoning area creates ample job opportunities - with some statements that there is zero unemployment. A . . .
The whirring of gears, sensors that turn a device off or on based on temperature, and the unique curvature on the front of your car all have one thing in common, they were crafted by mechanical engineers. When you really start to look around, there's very little in our modern lives not affected by mechanical . . .
A good engineer thinks in reverse and asks himself about the stylistic consequences of the components and systems he proposes - Helmut Jahn We're surrounded by chemicals. They exist naturally all around us, but they're also manufactured and combined in myriad ways to build products and compounds we take for granted and use regularly. The . . .
We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us - Winston Churchill Civil engineering is the design, development, and maintenance of infrastructure. In America, we're facing significant infrastructure issues. These issues can be seen in our airports, train systems, bridges, roads, and water systems. From the Rust Belt to major cities like New York and Los . . .
