A view of life (it's hard) the Universe (it's quite big and mostly full of emptiness) science (it's just as hard as life but with more maths) and technology (the good, the bad and the ugly) from the perspective of a highly harassed technician, which admittedly might be skewed. They say the glass is half empty- experience tells me to check whether or not that ...

Engineering has an image problem, and we are all trying desperately to get articles published, and media coverage to address this.

According to the official numbers,  almost 27% of all internet content is created in WordPress  (WP). What you are probably thinking now is that there must be a reason behind such a popularity of this particular CMS (content management software). It provides you with a wide range of advantages, from enabling you to avoid HTML coding process altogether, to the fact that you can easily integrate it with other platforms. Although WP is considered to be user-friendly, it does not mean you won’t need at least some help in setting it up. With this in mind, here are few things you should know about establishing your e-store in WordPress. read more...

A new year with new engineering challenges for the industry. In order to solve the engineering problems we face, our President, Professor Jeremy Watson, encourages us to access knowledge and creative input from non-traditional sources. These include not just other physical sciences but the social sciences as well as the creative arts. Whether it’s in helping us to understand a problem, devise an engineering solution or communicate an innovation, the industry can continue to develop strongly if we draw inspiration from the social as well as the physical world around us. read more...

It’s back! The second IET Young Professionals Global Challenge was launched in November 2016 at the Innovation Awards ceremony.   The competition, held in association with RedR, encourages young professionals and students to test their technical know-how by devising a solution to a real world  engineering problem. It enables young engineers to develop their technical, problem-solving and presentation skills and, as we have seen from the first competition, it can lead to some incredible opportunities within industry. read more...

I am usually not the one to do a ton of theorizing and philosophizing. In fact, I often try not to do it. Still, every now and then, one cannot stop but think about some humongous moments in one's life – moments that have changed everything about their life. For me and everyone from my generation (and all of the others, for that matter) has been the inception and the rapid proliferation of the web as an inseparable part of our lives. It has truly changed everything... read more...

Now some of you may have got the impression that we went to Antarctica to have fun.  I feel the need to point out that we were there as part of a Postgraduate Certificate , so it wasn’t all trips to wastewater plants and atmospheric research sites ! (Honestly - who can think of something more fun to do than tour poo-treatment facilities?)  We also did some actual research ourselves – which involved yet more digging…  I’m starting to wonder if we were actually on a secret digging training camp – kind of like a boot camp, but instead of getting up early to run around a field, we got up early to dig snow. Anyway, I digress.  One of the science projects we did while in the field was looking at snow accumulation at our campsite at Windless Bight .  Why?  read more...
