Our EngShorts videos

EngShorts is an ongoing series of 60-second videos, released every week, that ask challenging questions on big engineering topics to boost our public engagement and thought leadership.

6G: how can we make it open, inclusive and focussed on the great global challenges?

In this EngShort we look at the migration from no electricity to plentiful, reliable, affordable electricity, which is not a smooth one. Most of us are familiar with 12V direct current or DC and 110 or 230V alternating current. We are interested in the gap between these two as 12VDC is limited in power and grid AC is often unnecessarily powerful and unaffordable.

Why EngShorts?

As part of our aim to inspire, inform and influence, we have developed a new public-focused social media video campaign that highlights the role of engineering in addressing important societal challenges.

Emphasising our charitable remit, we hope to engage a new, younger audience and collect valuable information and data which can influence future work and help demonstrate how relevant the work at the IET is.

So, come over and follow us on Instagram and Facebook and comment, like, share and interact!
