Humans are the most innovative species that the Earth has ever seen. Our invention of various technologies has allowed us to dominate the planet in every aspect, and today we are virtually in control of almost everything that happens across the world.
Part of the reason our technology has advanced so quickly in a relatively short amount of time is due to our seemingly endless desire for conflict.

Most people at home have more than a few devices that are able to connect to the internet. When a device makes a request for a website to be loaded, that information comes from a server. Servers can be home-built and only consist of a few components, but this isn’t enough to power the world’s traffic.
Instead, we rely on massive data centres, warehouse-like buildings that are packed with hundreds of servers at once, all working together to serve the general population’s internet requirements.

Solar panels are seen as a revolution in the way that we generate electricity. As the fossil fuel industry continues to lose revenue and support every year, and as more companies and individuals begin to invest in solar alternatives, the overall cost of installing a solar array and plugging it into the main grid has never been cheap.

The brand-new gold rush in the digital world is all about renewable energy. However, more than that, it is about making this energy reliable. This means that finding ways to not just generate it but to store it when it is not required and release it when it is necessary.

More and more regions around the world are suffering from water shortages. It’s believed that due to the changing climate of the planet combined with the constant draw on fresh water by most large industries, potable water will not always be as abundant as it is now.
This isn’t to say that water will simply disappear, but rather that it will be increasingly difficult for officials to provide enough water for most people.

Solar arrays are a collection of solar panels and other devices connected together with the aim of using the power of the sun to generate electricity. As the oil industry has entered a long decline, and renewable energies have skyrocketed in popularity, more and more countries around the world are adopting solar as the next big shift in generating the power necessary to keep global industries going.

In terms of global warming the Earth is heading towards an irreparable state of suffering: 2020 tied with 2016 as the warmest year on record. While some are looking to government legislation to cut emissions, others are looking to technology for help.

It’s no secret that the future of engineering and technology is the carbon neutral space. New technologies are being developed daily that are helping industries reach a zero carbon future, and when it comes to the transportation industry, no one else is moving quicker. And so they should, with the transporting sector one of the biggest contributors to climate change, accounting for over 20% of all CO2 emissions, it is on industry, that needs to adapt, and fast.

Almost all of the global internet traffic invariably will find itself moving through a data centre. Data centres are massive, warehouse-like structures that are packed with servers – computers that are designed to offer data and services to the users that are connecting to them. These huge centres are what powers the world’s internet, allowing for instant and global access at any time of the day.

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.
