COVID-19 Has Led to a Pivotal Moment for Renewables, Such as this Floating Hybrid Energy Platform
The economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is pressuring governments to review their energy strategies. As long-term recovery plans are outlined, there is an opportunity to incorporate innovative renewable energy solutions—and this is certainly the case with SINN Power’s Ocean Hybrid Platform.
Beyond Conventional E-Studies: Immersive Learning Opportunities for Electrical Engineers
Virtual reality and augmented reality (or VR and AR) are just two examples of human-machine interfaces (HMIs) that are integral to immersive learning. Using industry-focused simulations, such HMIs can educate both prospective and experienced electrical engineers for practical work—and ultimately help companies to safely and affordably take on engineering graduates.
Engineering Innovations Focused on Improving Our Mental Health
Never has the importance of our mental health been more prevalent. The COVID-19 pandemic has driven a huge rise in anxiety illnesses across the globe. And, while our health services were already stretched, they are now bursting at the seams. Now more than ever, this has called for engineers to design technology that can monitor, research—and hopefully improve—our mental wellbeing.
How Difficult Is It to Design Electrical and Electronics Equipment for Space?
The minutiae required in the work of satellite and space electronics engineers is unlike that of their colleagues that design terrestrial systems —the challenge is to consider environment, power generation, safety, and reliability.
Critical Factors of Circuit Protection in Consumer Electronics
Consumer electronics such as smartphones, laptops, and TV sets require adequate circuit protection to prevent operation that can cause harm to users or varying levels of damage to electronic products, impacting their efficiency and reliability.
International Women in Engineering Day: How It Aims to ‘Shape the Engineering World’ for Female Engineers
International Women in Engineering Day 2020 (INWED20), will be in its seventh year this year and with COVID-19-related restrictions across the globe, the annual event has its work cut out like never before.
