When you consider all these aspects of World Animal Day, the question arises, how can engineers make a difference?
The fanfare of major events like Apple Event’s or Samsung Direct has become synonymous with big tech unveilings of new flagship devices for major manufacturers. EIT Journalist, Adriaan Roets, shares his thoughts on one of the latest topical releases.
New products that seem odd upon unveiling often become more sensical later. AirTags, upon announcement in 2021, seemed daft to me because surely, its function was somewhat overly unnecessary and could remain tech-free.
We’ve survived so long without it, and it seemed like a product that is almost like a tech intrusion on daily life.
When compiling your professional resume or curriculum vitae (CV), merely printing your credentials on thicker paper won’t make it stand out. When you put some extra thought and attention into the content and your personal marketing, printing it on standard A4 paper will not only do the job, but it can land you a job as well.
But what should a great entail? Here are some ways to beef up your job application, with input from the experts.
From good entry-level salaries, the possibility to see the world, and an ever-evolving career, engineering remains a field of possibilities.
Here’s some of the reason you should consider Engineering.
1. Engineering is considered the education of the future
Completing an engineering course means you get to be part of the future leaders who drives change in the world. From technology to sustainability, engineering is deeply entrenched in what is to come according to UNESCO’s latest Engineering For Sustainable Developmentreport.
Today we welcomed Engineers Australia Student & Graduate Engagement Manager, Ms. Kym Spann, to EIT's Bentley Campus to formally introduce Ceezan Maharjan as EIT's Engineers Australia Student Ambassador.
Engineers Australia (EA) Student Ambassadors are responsible for representing EA on-campus. They actively help their fellow student engineers to understand and benefit from the resources offered by Engineers Australia.
Ceezan is currently studying his Bachelor of Science (Mechanical Engineering) at our Bentley Campus and was also recently featured in our article, 'EIT Work Integrated Learning Goes Total Green' for using his internship experience to help stop the flow of e-waste to landfill.
We took a look at some of the highest growing engineering fields of the future, according to Australian Government Initiative, Job Outlook.
Paper. Something that has been around for thousands of years is getting reverse engineering treatment to help save the planet.
At the helm of the operation is trained electrical engineer Mahbub Sumon from Narayanganj, Bangladesh.
In 2018, he and three friends founded Shalbrikhkho and started their first project to create eco-friendly paper that gives back to the earth.
They dubbed their creation, Bonkagoj, a bio-friendly product with embedded seeds that will sprout when the paper is discarded or ends up in a landfill.
In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (and Machine Learning) has been touted as the panacea for process plants: using instrumentation to gather the data and automated systems to effect improvements to the operations. There have been huge advances and some great successes, but maintaining a healthy cynicism is essential.
Machine learning is certainly one of the most exciting technologies in recent times. Both large and small companies have embraced it with tremendous results.
Skilled Engineer and EIT Graduate, Daniel Baidoo, enjoys solving complex problems.
However, one problem he never had to solve was studying while working full time. The two worlds just melded together in the end, and it is something he believes gave him an advantage professionally.
Studying EIT’s 52882WA - Advanced Diploma in Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities allowed Daniel to bring his course knowledge to his workplace, and he couldn’t be happier.
From schools to pedestrian safety, 3D printing is playing a role in education. In rural Malawi, going to school is not simple. Long walks with no reliable transport coupled with the lack of infrastructure create a scenario where dropping out of school is common. Now, 3D printing is changing that.
According to the Thomson Reuters Foundation, a newly established 3D classroom in the village of Salima in central Malawi is showing that 3D Printing is finally gaining its footing as an important part of infrastructure development, and education in the country.
