On the other hand, it is the way of getting things done scientifically and procedurally.
Definition:        "The study and application of scientific principles in practice to design and build machines and structures are called an Engineering."
As we know for building machines and structures, we need to use various scientific principles from various branches of science like physics, mechanics, chemistry, and many more.
History:The first engineer was the builder of the pyramid known by name and achievements is Imhotep. Imhotep builds the Step Pyramid at Saggrrah Egypt, probably about 2550 BCE. His successor from Egypt, Persia, Greek, and Rome, ca…

AI Based X-Ray For Diagnosis of COVID-19

The world is facing the global crisis of pandemic. In this situation health care facilities facing problems like staff shortages and overwhelming patient loads. Intense increment in loads of patients tends to work on for compensation of lack, this leads to finding the methods which help the Fastrack diagnosis process.  Researchers from various fields working on developing the methods and devices which help to Fastrack and accurate the diagnosis process.             Approval of the research depends on the accuracy of results and ease of use. Conventional diagnosis methods like Polymerising chain reaction (PCR) are having better results accuracy but the time required for the diagnosis of sample is more. So far in an emergency situation it is often difficult to check more samples in less time. Researchers got a solution to this problem in terms of new technology.             AI (artificial intelligence) is a booming area of research in various fields. The pandemic becomes the gateway for t…

Contribution of Engineers to Fight Against COVID-19.

Now the day's world is facing an outbreak of a pandemic. The whole world is affected by the consequences caused by COVID-19.
