Female Engineers That Are Making A Name for Themselves in The Electrical Engineering Field
Despite the ongoing battle for female equality, today’s women electrical engineers have made a name for themselves both in engineering and in other fields like politics and business. This list includes several well-established figures, but also runs through some up-and-coming engineers who we can expect to make big leaps forward in their field over the next few decades.
The Growing Problem of Counterfeit Electronic Components
The electronics components industry is flourishing—with new suppliers showing up daily, many from abroad, and it becomes a greater challenge for companies to detect fake pieces and distinguish between the real deal and a bland, low-quality copy...
How Organic Biodegradable Electronics Help Protect the Environment and Ourselves
Waste, and especially electronics waste, is a major issue that humanity needs to tackle if it’s to keep this planet in a viable condition long-term. Bioengineers have been working increasingly closely with electronics engineers to resolve this issue with multiple breakthroughs in the last 12 months.
Get Ready for RoHS 3: How the EU Directive Impacts the Electronics Industry
Regulations and laws can be a headache for many engineers and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances is no exception! The EU is about to bring RoHS 3 into law, so how will this affect engineers and what can you do to prepare yourself?
What Sets ABET Accredited Engineering University Programmes Apart?
Is formal accreditation mandatory for engineering programmes? Does it really help students to find work more easily than those that have studied at a non-accredited institution? We analyse the various aspects of ABET accreditation in detail.
What’s the Difference Between Plumbene, Silicene, and Graphene?
Graphene is a two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms. Silicene, on the other hand, is the thinnest possible 2D form of silicon, and plumbene is a 2D lattice of lead atoms. These two-dimensional materials have researchers scrambling to understand them better, and they have superlative traits that could have drastic implications for the future of physics and engineering.
Hybrid-Electric Aircraft Advance Aviation Industry Standards
Just like electric vehicles, the idea of designing electric-powered aircraft has been with us for decades. However, unlike EVs, its development and commercialisation have been much slower: technical issues, production costs, and safety issues multiply exponentially when it comes to vehicles that take to the skies.
