We have started to talk a lot of engineers tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems involving health, agriculture, sanitation and education. And the more we dig, we more we find engineers applying their skills, talent and energy to solving humankind’s problems. One such organization I came across recently is the aptly named Engineers without Borders. Allied with the Rotarians (the folks who brought us Easter Seals), EWB has 200 chapters and 170 projects in 41 countries. Check them out.
Watch designnews.com for more information and stories about the work EWB and other organizations like it are doing. And if you know of engineers doing wonderful things, we’d like to know about it to help and and recognize them.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
