Chemical engineering (CHE) is a branch of engineering that deals with many applications. These applications include involvement in the design, improvement of the many ubiquitous materials, things, which you use every day.By MILTON BERTRANDAugust 19, 2014Chemical engineering (CHE) is an engineering branch that deals with many applications. These applications are largely involved in the design, improvement of the many ubiquitous materials, things, which you use daily. These can be in the area of chemical, biological, medical and the list goes on. The design process can be at nano or macro-scale depending on its application; during the designs, application processes chemical engineers have to maintain, ensure, proper safety, quality control, quality assurance, sustainability and economically. As chemical engineers, you understand the challenges that lie ahead in the field. This means the entire process of a design must be planned, controlled for safety, cost and so on.  Critical thinking, analyzing, compartmentalizing things must be at the core to make inform decision. Choosing a discipline like chemical engineering is for the love of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Many may want to study this field because it has great earning potential; in other case, many like the challenges that are associated with this field to simplify daily living for many and bring better products through new engineering discoveries. You have to learn to embrace CHE as a new community. For chemical engineers it is imperative to know who you can lean on for help or ask questions on affairs that are CHE related. Another is get use to work in group. Many of you may not realize working in group is a great way to understand the concept of new materials from others. Working in group allows you to express your engineering mind. After all, in the real world, you have to share, collaborate and brainstorm ideas with colleagues. And also when you work in group you come to know each other and possibly talk about tangential things that are important. After all, you are homo-sapiens and social by nature. Working in group is excellent.  You as a chemical engineer you must keep your eye on the goal. Often time, you will try to carry a conversation with some colleagues to know that they do not know much about the industry they are in. This is a colossal mistake that most employers make by hiring the wrong candidates. This is why it is gravely important to listen, talk, attend seminars, and be informed about all the possible avenues in your discipline. STEM Academic Network like Geazle is a wonderful place to get connected with like minded individuals in your respective field. If you are not a fellow Geazler, join today for a better tomorrow.Geazle.com is a social network that connects scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEMers).

Summary:

Geazle STEM Social Academic Network that connects scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEMers).

 

To effectively compete in the 21st century, educations with a solid foundation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines are imperative. It becomes a priority to stimulate interest in STEM. Employment in STEM disciplines is expected to grow at nearly double the rate for all occupations in the coming years. If there is little interest in the STEM fields, many companies will find it difficult to fill their positions. The greatest fear is that many nations will find it more and more difficult to compete in the global economy without a skilled workforce. Therefore, a paradigm shift is essential.

 

A STEM Social Academic Network Geazle.com is created to stimulate interest in these fields. The main goal is to connect scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEMers). It is believed that social networks are tools with such great educational potential. The STEM Social Academic Network Geazle.com is working to break down the barriers that deter so many from starting to explore these important fields at a young age. Geazle is open to everyone that is curious about STEM.

 

Geazle is an intricate network of students, professors, and professionals engaging in intellectual conversations about anything related to STEM. Geazle is a place for people of all ages and interests who simply want to gain and share knowledge. Members on Geazle also known as Geazlers can post links, write blogs, articles, post documents, video chat, create sub-network, group, study group, engage in forum discussions, and comment on the message board, as well as upload a variety of contents, including pictures, audio and video. Geazle is a great place to express the knowledge accumulated over time, get feedback from others who have their own knowledge base and have an intelligent discussion.

 

Here are some of the reasons you should you care?

Disseminate best practices in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

Host a Web-based Network for knowledge sharing and professional networking

Collect and share new ideas that matter to society

Develop and promote resources and tools

Build a positive STEM social portfolio by blogging, posting articles etc…

 

An essential part of the STEM Web-based Network is committed to sharing knowledge and proven best practices that informs all interested in improving STEM education and careers.

 

Another objective of Geazle is to encourage members to organize small social gathering to discuss Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) related issues in their local communities. The purpose is to diffuse STEM knowledge; STEM knowledge includes Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Production and processing, Engineering, Technology, Electronics and Computers, Mathematics, Mechanical, Building and Constructions, Design and more. Geazle believes that organizing small groups can generate interest and make a difference.

Milton Geazle's insight:
Your hopes, your desires, everything you did, do, or will ever do rest within numbers; Mathematics contains all the answers to all the questions in this macrocosm; the secret to immortality, eternal happiness, and the meaning of life rest within numbers. We are afloat on a hidden ocean of mathematical equations. Without these mathematical equations, modern technologies would have not been invented. If we are able to harness the power of numbers, then we will be able to invent a better future.BY MILTON BERTRAND  Polynomial Equation (Image credit: Milton Bertrand)There is that notion what will we do with all the mathematics? Algebra, calculus, and differential equations to name a few are useless. The time has come to dispel that notion. Mathematics is the science and study of magnitude, multitude, structure, space, limits, function, infinite series, and the study of numbers. The power of mathematics is a macrocosmic affair.  There are many reasons as to why we should continue with the teaching, and learning of mathematics. Mathematics is embedded in electronic devices as algorithms that define this modern world. Mathematics powers our financial institutions from security to password. Numerical values define the world we live in. All objects in the macrocosm are defined by numbers. As it is known today, a characteristic or non-mathematical object is yet to be found. Everything that is touched or will be touched is a number; everything that is created or will ever be created is a number. Human being is a number or the next one that will be born. In fact, number is everything. Emotions, feeling, love, hatred, beauty, and so on are just numbers. Indeed, without mathematical equations modern technologies would have been very difficult to achieve; the basic understanding of us and the rest of the universe could have been very challenging. In fact, these mathematical equations rule the world. It is to some extent impossible to name all the equations that make possible the many things we take for granted. The wave equation that makes talking, using the internet possible. Wave is ubiquitous; therefore, we have been bombarded constantly by it.  While these mathematical equations do not exist in the physical world, they underlie much of modern technologies, from radio, power generation, electronic devices, musical instruments, and so on. The following are some of the mathematical equations that influence our daily life. James Clerk Maxwell's four equations on electromagnetismNavier Stokes equation that describes how air flows over and around itNewton's law of motion and gravity which help in the geo-positioning of satellites and set their orbitsThe wave equation that allows us to listen to live broadcasting over the radio and so onIn 1807, Joseph Fourier devised an equation for heat flow. The result is the Fourier's transform; an equation that treats a time varying signal as the sum of series of component sine curves and calculate their amplitudes and frequencies.Real life applications of mathematics use equations as mathematical models. Mathematical models are used to represent actual data. In so doing, simplicity and accuracy must be considered. The model must be simple enough to be workable, yet accurate enough to produce meaningful results. These models are important; they allow us to predict or forecast future outcomes. Here is an example. A city population was 3,687,000 in 1990 and 4,042,000 in 2000. Over this ten year period how do we calculate the rate of change? The rate of change is given as: Rate of change = Change in population/ change in years Rate of change = 4,042,000-3,687,000/2000-1990 = 35, 500 people per year If the population continues to increase at the same rate for the next 20 years (2020) that city will have a population of (35,500 * 20) + 4,042,000 = 4,742,000 people This was the calculation of average rate of change. An average rate of change is always calculated over an interval. In the case presented the interval was 1990, 2000. Every decision is reached to a predefined set of numbers that we refer to as pattern; a pattern is to some extent unique to every individual. To conclude, your hopes, your desires, everything you did, do, or will ever do rest within numbers; Mathematics contains all the answers to all the questions in this macrocosm; the secret to immortality, eternal happiness, and the meaning of life rest within numbers.We are afloat on a hidden ocean of mathematical equations. Without these mathematical equations, modern technologies would have not been invented. If we are able to harness the power of numbers, then we will be able to invent a better future. Geazle.com is a social network that connects scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEMers).
