When we think of ‘engineering’, what first comes to mind is the mechanical and electrical side of engineering – such as construction, electrical plants and the like. However, what people’s minds often don’t think of – when it comes to engineering – is that this practice happens as well in the medical field.
When one speaks about ‘engineering innovations’ and the continents which were responsible for developing these, Africa is not one of the continents which readily comes to mind.
However, while they may not have been responsible for developing a particular technology from scratch, Africans have taken already-developed technology. They have adapted it to the needs of their people.
Climate change is a problem that we can no longer ignore as a whole, and we’re beginning to feel the harsh impacts of deforestation and carbon emissions, such as the latest global pandemic. And while there are countless people complaining about the world coming to an end, there are just as many that are working to fix the problems that we are facing.
Many of these solutions come in the form of advanced engineering projects designed by some of the world’s sharpest minds. These are projects that are years in the making and will hopefully make the world a better place for all.
