Our sense of touch lets us know how hard or soft something is, how solid or pliable it is to handle. That's an important skill if you want robots to handle things safely.
It would be difficult, but we could probably build a tower over 2,000 metres tall, which would be like ten normal skyscrapers on top of each other! This is probably not a very good idea though.
A shift to outcomes-based education will enable students to gain critical automation-resistant competencies to succeed and thrive in the future workforce alongside AI.
Once called 'the most important subject no one has heard of', tribology is now a key part of the fourth industrial revolution.
Leonardo's range of knowledge fascination with flying led directly to the development of modern aircraft, nearly four centuries later.
Engineer, artist, mathematician, thinker: Leonardo da Vinci was all these and more.
Researchers find promising results for two programs patterned after the Meyerhoff Scholars Program, a renowned initiative launched at UMBC in the 1980s and known to increase diversity in STEM.
As Leonardo da Vinci found centuries ago, scholars of art, design, engineering and science can work together for mutual benefit.
Technological advances and discoveries are moving at a rate faster than engineering education can keep up with. The solution is a revised approach to teaching engineering.
Recreating freak waves can tell us a lot about the nature of the sea.
