Nanotechnology brings together multiple science disciplines to create devices that mimic the refinements of nature. It’s difficult – and exhilarating.
Whether or not you’ve ever used the word flutter, you’ve encountered the phenomenon – in flags, airplanes, bridges and more. Mathematicians are still figuring out exactly why and how this happens.
When structures collapse, what's involved in finding out what really happened?
The massive Hebron oil platform off the coast of Newfoundland is an engineering marvel. Here's how it was constructed.
The British inventor of the clockwork radio and over 200 other devices has died.
Employers now expect to hire people out of universities who don't require any training. That's why so-called experiential learning is becoming so critical for university students.
The shipping industry can learn from oil spills – if it wants to.
Adding a bit of fungus to the initial ingredient list might be one way to endow concrete with the ability to fill in any bits of damage that occur, without the need for human intervention.
We'd need some major innovation to bridge the Channel without disrupting shipping.
Africa has recorded a tremendous growth in its output of academic engineering research over the past 20 years. Greater collaboration can increase this growth even more.
If leaders of educational institutions are concerned about the employability of graduates, they should avoid over-investing in STEM subjects and stop snubbing liberal arts.
Engineering has long been a male-dominated profession. Now engineering schools globally are making extraordinary efforts to attract the creative female talent they really need.
One professor explains how war in Iran led her to a career in biomedical engineering - a rapidly growing field that offers students exciting opportunities to serve humanity.
Tall buildings are an increasing feature of Australia's city landscapes, although they're still relatively small compared to overseas. But is there a limit on how high we can build?
This year's Toronto International Film Festival is a further example of how science, technology, engineering and math illuminate movies – and, in the process, our minds.
Women can often draw attention to dimensions of thinking that their male perspective may miss. But this will only work if they are in positions that allow them to lead and drive the research agenda.
Bio-inspiration takes cues from natural structures that do certain things very effectively. One example: the strong but flexible fibers that sea sponges use to anchor themselves to the ocean floor.
How much protection will the Halo system give drivers?
It's been 80 years since this beloved landmark opened to San Francisco traffic. In the interim, technology has advanced – is there a better way to span this strait?
