There are many universities that offer Computer Engineering either as a degree program or as a sub-discipline of Electrical Engineering. An emerging energy option that home or business owners can use to produce electricity on-site to live off the electrical grid is a small-scale fuel cell electricity generator that is powered by either natural gas or propane, which is known informally as a home fuel cell. Fuel cell technology, which uses a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity without combustion, is not a new way to produce electricity; it has been around for decades. Hydrogen molecules are drawn out by a small-scale fuel cell from a home or business’ natural gas or propane supply. The hydrogen is then combined with oxygen available in the ambient air using an electrochemical process, which produces electricity, heat, water vapor and a small amount of carbon dioxide. There is no combustion of … Read the rest

The rate at which new computer hardware products are arriving in the market is simply mind-boggling. In today’s world we seem to expect a lot from our governments. We expect them to eliminate crime at the same time as we continually increase the number of new criminal laws, we expect them to increase economic output, reduce inequality, make our neighbourhoods more pleasant places to live, provide a wide range of services, prevent terrorism, increase public morality, reduce behaviours we see as harmful such as smoking, substance abuse, bullying etc, and many other things besides. There is a very serious danger that in the near future technology will make many of these previously impossible demands which we have placed on our governments entirely possible. I say that this is a danger, rather than a utopian dream, because most of these things are not really within the government’s power to give us … Read the rest
