You expected something here didn't you?!?!?
1st year civil, want to go into construction back home. However, mining and manufacturing steel and processing other metals has been interesting to me, is there any material you can recommend for me to get me more information/knowledge on those fields?Tell us what you do as a project and what you study. I do assist people from a wide variety of fields from medicine and engineering to material science with some technical work at our facility. They do develop, create and work on useful technologies that can get into the markets tomorrow.
A simple example is the design of microfluidics which enable researchers to study cancer or any other disease in isolation cheaply and effectively. Some other engineering work in magnetics, solar systems, self assembling nano-crystals that will help quantum computing do take place at my work too.
So tell us what you study and what you hope to accomplish in the future.
