Guide to the Top Engineering Summer Programs (2024-2025) May 31, 2024

Engineering summer programs take place during the seasonal summer vacation, and offer aspiring engineers the chance to gain some hands-on engineering experience. They also come with networking and mentorship opportunities.

What are Edge Technologies? Diminishing Cloud Computing’s Latency
What are Edge Technologies? Diminishing Cloud Computing’s Latency Apr 18, 2024

Edge technologies bring data storage and data processing closer to where data is generated. That simple shift has big benefits. While cloud computing relies on sending data back and forth between a centralized server, edge computing performs computation closer to the source, reducing latency and bandwidth usage. As applications increasingly rely on ultra-fast, near-instantaneous connections, edge technologies are an essential tool for enabling them.

Take Aim: The Five Hottest Problems in Materials Engineering
Take Aim: The Five Hottest Problems in Materials Engineering Apr 01, 2024

Materials engineers study, design, and manipulate the properties of materials. Their work can enable entirely new products, or help to improve existing ones. This is a deeply multidisciplinary field, bringing together principles of physics, chemistry, and engineering. And several of the research challenges it’s facing are related to the most pressing challenges in the world.

Cutting-edge Carbon Capture and Removal Companies & Technology
Cutting-edge Carbon Capture and Removal Companies & Technology Mar 28, 2024

Many companies are turning towards cutting-edge technology known as “carbon capture” or “carbon removal” to tackle this issue. Carbon capture stores or utilizes carbon emissions from industrial processes before entering the atmosphere, whereas carbon removal removes excess carbon from the environment.

Solar Radiation Management – Engineering a Response to Climate Change
Solar Radiation Management – Engineering a Response to Climate Change Mar 19, 2024

Climate change is real. Its effects are drastic, and worsening. Global efforts to cut emissions and reduce fossil fuel consumption have met with mixed results. To mitigate the most catastrophic outcomes of climate change, some engineers are turning to outside-the-box ideas like solar radiation management.
