In our modern time of advanced science and technology, everyone requires and desires to perceive the information in a very compact, precise and brief way. When trying to answer the question ‘What is the meaning of science and technology?’ we have to view science as the study of the natural world while technology has to be viewed as the study of how to manipulate the natural world in order to suit man. Some of the other hot topics in new research technology include environment and renewable energy, space science, electronics, stem-cell investigations and many others. All in all we already know the advantages and disadvantages of science and ‘s up to us people how to make good use of it for us not to be affected by its disadvantages. Some of the biggest effects of technology are in the area of communication; through the internet and mobile phones.
Medical technology has reached a point where organs can be transplanted from one individual to another. The Namibia University of Science and Technology is home to more than 650 international students representing 32 countries and four continents (2015). India has become a highly growing country through the new inventions in science and technological advancement. Science has helped the students to travel all across the world not only for pleasure but to educate himself about various wonders of nature and see historical places. We constantly use cell phones and computers, which are gifts of science and technology.
As per a report released on May 8, 2013, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, have developed a technique to lessen smoke emissions during the process of forging steel. The term ‘Traditional Knowledge System’ was thus coined as a scientific system which has its own validity, as a supplement to ‘modern’ science. I entered as an undergraduate at UFRN in the year of 2010 in the second semester for the science and Technology course – C&T. Science has also contributed the most advanced and well equipped laboratories for students to learn and conduct practicals.
Scientists at the Carnegie Mellon University, USA, have developed a new technology that can enable users to turn any surface into a touch screen with just a wave of the hand. New fields such as information technology and genetic engineering force courts to decide how to apply laws made before such technologies were contemplated. The tradition of spiritual experimentation in India, however, is compatible with the material and intellectual experimentation required by science.
It is from the general behaviour makeup of people that all forms of physical structures could be created, so too the question of science and technology. Technology has led to the development of modern machines such as cars and motorcycles which allow us to be mobile and travel freely and airplanes which travel at a supersonic speed. Some technology camps do not follow a specific routine and the participants can choose as per their interests. Communication is one more area where technology has undergone a rapid transformation.
