ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 25 February 2020

As well as curating stories from many sources, we categorise those stories in a couple of different ways. We make sure that every relevant tag is included (so that the right stories show up in your customised feed) and we also categorise by article type.

For example, if you select the Education tab in the Articles feed from the ENGins front page, you can read about the space clarinet designed by a 10-year old, the gender gap in science exams disappearing for longer tests, and the impact that the exodus of AI professors from universities to industry has had on students.

As always, the stories you're delivered will depend on your customisation preferences. But seeing news stories from all sectors is easy simply turn off customisation using the switch at the top of the page.

Very best,
