Engineering is the field of sciences where applications of scientific subjects are used both theoretically and physically in order to innovate, design and construct new things for the betterment of the world. Engineering has been around since the 3rd century playing its role for the revolution of mankind and unlocking new doors to explore more. Technology’s main core element is engineering itself. Over the centuries that has passed through, the technologies that are invented are impacting in the engineering world. Today, technology has revolutionize everything we see around, it is now possible to apply manufacturing skills in a molecular level, to send a message from east to west in under a second and to explore the galaxy and other planets …show more content…
Humans will be replaced by machines that can do a far better and efficient job than a human; plus it’ll be much cheaper operating a machine compared to the demands of a human. This speculation has now become a fact in the world of globalization and companies. Dr. Mark Polczynski sheds light upon this matter in his presentation about the impact of technology in the engineering field. According to Dr. Mark, the term “tangible assets” correlates to the human being in today’s world of industries and companies. These industries and companies hunt for the cheapest way possible to manufacture their product in order to achieve their budget saving. Today, technology has been manufactured and designed in a way to actually replace human beings in the market. This increase advancement of technology is a con for cutting job opportunities and producing limited spaces in the market to actually work. It is a sad fact that even though it is the answer to the prayers of the budget saving companies out there but it is a threat of losing or not even getting a job that was once operated by humans. These companies manufacture products for other companies to produce machines designed to do repetitive tasks having a sole purpose to be cost efficient and to replace human beings. All possible because of the advancement of technology and it’s negative impact on …show more content…
The book starts off by giving an example of biotechnology and how technology has led engineers to make such innovative technology to help the humankind to recover better and be healthy. For example: the technology that was developed in recent years to help the victims who have burned skin but, instead of replacing the damaged skin by getting an artificial one or let the burned mark stay there, they have the technology to produce more cells for the human skin to recover the damaged part with a natural skin. Impossible at first but made into a reality now. The second thing it describes is the creation of an entire new field of micro level studies and unlocking a new unexplored path which we have seen above describing how this new product really helped the world and how it is an important element. Even logistic wise, the manufacturing of products has doubled since the last century due to the increase in population and demands. Machines of today used by Walmart or Cosco in their factories have abilities to produce the necessities of a human being faster and more efficient than ever before with a goal to always be in stock and to supply everyone without trouble. It’s really fascinating to think that it’s possible now to supplying billions of people on time. Finally they
