For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

Moreover, these technologies have become so complex that entire fields have developed to support them, including engineering, medicine, and computer science; and other fields have become more complex, such as construction, transportation, and architecture. The earliest known technology is the stone tool, used in the prehistoric era, followed by fire use, which contributed to the growth of the human brain and the development of language in the Ice Age. The invention of the wheel in the Bronze Age enabled wider travel and the creation of more complex machines. Recent technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet have lowered communication barriers and ushered in the knowledge economy. Technology continues to be a primary catalyst for change in the world. Technology advances give businesses, governments, and social-sector institutions more possibilities to lift their productivity, invent and reinvent offerings, and contribute to humanity’s well-being.

  • Computers were invented and later shifted from analog to digital in the Digital Revolution.
  • The Department of Biosystems Engineering focuses on the application of technology for the production of agricultural materials and products as well as natural labor in the environment and agricultural production systems and agricultural production processes.
  • Hands-on and expert-led apprenticeship and industry training for skilled trades and technology professionals.
  • The cooking hypothesis proposes that the ability to cook promoted an increase in hominid brain size, though some researchers find the evidence inconclusive.
  • There is a broad range of ethical issues revolving around technology, from specific areas of focus affecting professionals working with technology to broader social, ethical, and legal issues concerning the role of technology in society and everyday life.
  • With over 250 university programmes, we’re sure to share your passion.

Nanotechnology will grant us the ability to manipulate matter “at the molecular and atomic scale”, which could allow us to reshape ourselves and our environment in fundamental ways. Nanobots could be used within the human body to destroy cancer cells or form new body parts, blurring the line between biology and technology. Autonomous robots have undergone rapid progress, and are expected to replace humans at many dangerous tasks, including search and rescue, bomb disposal, firefighting, and war. This was followed a century later by the Second Industrial Revolution which led to rapid scientific discovery, standardization, and mass production.

Sinta provide benchmarks and analysis, identification of research strength of each institution to develop collaborative partnerships, to analyze the trend of research and expert directories. Each student should be able to apply interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in developing alternative solutions for problem-solving. Each student should be able to develop good UI & UX design to support IS Development. Each student should be able to recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.

To make a stone tool, a “core” of hard stone with specific flaking properties was struck with a hammerstone. This flaking produced a sharp edge on the core stone as well as on the flakes, either of which could be used as tools, primarily in the form of choppers or scrapers. The transhumanism movement is founded upon the “continued evolution of human life beyond its current human form” through science and technology, informed by “life-promoting principles and values.” The movement gained wider popularity in the early 21st century. It usually encompasses a related argument, technological autonomy, which asserts that technological progress follows a natural progresion and cannot be prevented. Social constructivists argue that technologies follow no natural progression, and are shaped by cultural values, laws, politics, and economic incentives. Modern scholarship has shifted towards an analysis of sociotechnical systems, “assemblages of things, people, practices, and meanings,” looking at the value judgments that shape technology.
