Your Engineering Inspiration for Monday 28 September 2020


To learn more about the long view in your field, check out the Trends tab from the ENGins front page. Depending on how you have your customisation settings dialed in, you might read about swarm intelligence in robotics, the challenges we face in sourcing enough lithium to drive the future of transportation, or how the climate bill passed in New York last month is pushing forward sustainable building development to reduce the city's carbon footprint. To see all of these and more, simply turn off customisation (using the toggle in the ENGins Userbar).

Very best,
