Welcome to a new era of engineering
Engineering started the industrial revolution. Incredible inventions, like the steam engine, were designed and manufactured using just pencil and paper!
Computers triggered the 2nd engineering revolution, when big mainframes could perform mathematical calculations to find midpoints, areas, centers of gravity, etc.
While computers’ processing speed advanced, so did the engineering software. The ability to create 3D animations and make simulations was a giant leap forward.
We are now entering a new era – engineering 4.0. This age is characterised by (big) data, connected devices, Artificial Intelligence and automation.
