Engineering for Change

Interest: ICT

The boom in mobile phone ownership has been one of the unanticipated success stories of global development. And with all of that computing power in the hands of so many people, software engineers are at the leading edge of the work to improve lives. Other electronic hardware is also gaining momentum, with innovations like e-readers, drones and 3D printers. These tools are how communities can leapfrog over phases of development to catch up with the pack.
