EIT on-campus students are using their internship experiences to think beyond recycling and help stop the flow of e-waste to landfills.
There’s a well-known phrase that everything is bigger in Texas. From being the biggest state in the contiguous United States to having one of the world’s biggest football stadiums, Texas is also home to the world’s largest gate valve.
The accolade came not for bragging rights or to honor the infamous phrase, but due to the states expected water shortages. By 2060, reports estimate Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW) population will have grown to more than 13 million, and that water demands in the area will have increased 86 percent.
Almost a decade ago, the opening ceremony at the London 2012 Olympic Games showed the world a recreation of Britain’s industrial revolution in spectacular fashion. As cameras panned over the Olympic Stadium and factories sprouted out of thin air, the rapid evolution of the industry was illustrated to 900 million people.
The mesmerizing feat in many ways was an astute display to show how quickly and effectively the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) will evolve.
For Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) students and professionals, virtual reality (VR) allows for engaging and realistic first-person immersion. Leading companies and organizations are beginning to use the technology in education and training to connect knowledge with experience.

“Engineering is ever-evolving and full of potential. All you need is the right attitude and determination. That’s what I love about engineering. There is always a place to do something more or new,” he explains.
Students and staff at EIT fondly know Dr.
Here at EIT, we love a good movie that pushes the envelope of innovation, and no genre does it better than Science Fiction. Theoretically, a lot of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in cinematic adventures could be plausible, and in fact, this list of five AI creations do have counterparts in the real world that could easily slip into similar cinematic roles.

There’s no denying Pixar’s WALL-E is one of the most loveable robotic creations ever, but he has a lot of purposes too.
Micro-credentials like Graduate Certificates are emerging as badges of honor in the workplace or as an educational pathway to further education in engineering.
It is an excellent way for working engineers to upskill, or for graduates to add to their academic portfolio and be job-ready.
Nine New Courses With EIT
EIT is introducing 9 new industry-oriented Graduate Certificates aimed at those who want to advance their education or career prospects.
Failure teaches us more than success.
Whilst on the surface it may sound seemingly absurd, this is a widely accepted thinking among the engineering field. Lessons will always arise in the face of disaster as the cause of failure can be exposed, reviewed, and corrected to make improvements.
In short, our wrongdoings are motivation for innovation.
However, this should not be confused with the idea that failure is desirable.
