Category:Engineering and society
Engineering and technological advancements are usually not born from a vacuum, but instead originate from a specific need in society. These needs can be quite broad in scope and can range from military applications to leisure. The mass distribution of electric power, the introduction of computing, transportation infrastructure, mineral extraction and the synthesis of various chemicals and materials have all had profound effects on our day to day lives.
