Carol Moverley and Alison Brown have been at the helm of the Engineering Institute of Technology’s (EIT) branch in the United Kingdom for the last twenty years. Their story not only details how technology has impacted on education and training over the years, but how the company itself has adapted and grown. They certainly did not join the Engineering Institute of Technology that we know today.
Carol and Alison joined one of the initial iterations of the company – Instrument Data...
A few weeks back we sent an email out to our students regarding their overall experiences with the Remote Labs. The feedback we received was extremely comprehensive; allowing us to identify and mitigate the primary points of confusions.
To subsequently amend this, we are rolling out a new version of the Remote Labs. The new version consists primarily of minor tweaks and fixes, but we have a few major updates listed below that you might like.
The new version will be rolled...

Engineers are synonymous with having unbridled amounts of knowledge. Some might say they have a wealth of knowledge. They have to publish their thoughts and work into books, journals, magazines and the like, in a bid to inform and instruct others. However, a stereotype that is furthered by non-engineers is the apparent fact that engineers are not effective communicators. It is, of course, a generalization to say that engineers struggle with communication, however, it wouldn’t be a stereotype if...
The Master’s degree is the new black. It’s becoming awfully fashionable in a world where a Bachelor’s degree is becoming more accessible than ever, and therefore, more redundant. When fighting for lower tuition fees, students from around the world always reference the progressive thinking Germany (and surrounding European countries), who offer free higher education. What they do not always say is that once you venture to obtain your Master’s degree, suddenly, tuition fees are involved. What...
