There’s no better time to become a software engineer. There are 4.66 billion people from all across the world who use the Internet and this number is growing exponentially every single year. In 2019 there were more than 5 billion people (again, these are global statistics) who had mobile phones.
At the moment, the world has something of a transportation problem. Not only are most major cities around the world clogged almost every single day, but the amount of emissions released by these massive traffic congestions is becoming more and more of a health problem.
Individual cars don’t work well for large cities, as too many people having a single car in the morning leads to large jams and blockages, and increases the chance of accidents happening. Public transport, then, is the answer, and there are a few interesting projects and ideas in the works for what the future of public transportation is going to look at.

For as long as there’s been science fiction, there have been countless ideas of the kinds of technology that humans could create one day, often ending up with the creation of incredible structures known as megastructures.
These are massive technological marvels that would signal our transition from one type of civilization to another, usually one that’s able to travel across space and hardness the incredible power of the sun.
NASA is currently the world leader when it comes to the latest in space travel technology, and their many years of experience and experimentation means that they have a deeper understanding of the difficulties of space travel than most.
In line with this, NASA has offered a large reward to anyone around the world that is able to offer some real progress on some of these ideas. Without enough time and the right investments, many of these ideas could change the way we handle our voyages into the dark void surrounding our planet.
Turkish Sultan Bayezid II put out the call for a bridge design that would connect Istanbul and Galata, a neighbouring city, in 1502. It would have been the world’s longest bridge span in history at that time, and Leonardo da Vinci sent in a proposal. He didn’t get the job.
Today, most of our power comes from either oil, coal, or solar and wind. And while these have seen us through the last two hundred years, one day they will provide enough energy to meet our ambitions. Continue reading “Future Sources of Energy”
Biomedical engineering is a specialized field of engineering that involves the design of both procedures and devices that can improve the lives and well-being of patients.
Such innovations also allow doctors and surgeons to more effectively solve healthcare problems, leading to a healthier population overall. Here are 5 of the world’s greatest biomedical breakthroughs that changed the industry for the better. Continue reading “6 Biomedical Breakthroughs That Revolutionized Medicine”
When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on the moon in July 1969, no one could’ve predicted that we would one day be having serious conversations about not only visiting another planet, but actually populating it. As technology and engineering continue to advance, we have started to see the possibility of perhaps forming a colony on Mars, but there are a variety of factors which need to be addressed first such as how sustainable it really is. Here is what it will take to live on Mars.
For hundreds of years engineers have been working on medical projects that are designed to make our lives easier and healthier. These life saving ideas came to be after much research, and they continue to change our lives in so many ways.
Engineering is an extremely expansive subject, and there are many different types of engineering to choose from. This can be a bit of a problem for those that are trying to choose what type of engineering to begin studying.
