Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 29 September 2020


Our careful categorisation of news stories and articles makes it easy to quickly narrow down to the engineering specialism of interest.

As an example, to find out how science and engineering is responding to the threat of the new coronavirus, you might head to the Biomedical Engineering section of the site. As is the case with all sections on ENGins, you'll be presented with coverage from disparate, intersecting areas of engineering that you might otherwise miss:

China is using mass surveillance tech to fight new coronavirus spread
Predicting contagion speed
Is a coronavirus vaccine on the way?
How computer scientists are trying to predict the coronavirus's next moves

It's this interdisciplinarity that ENGins is designed to highlight!

Very best,
