Less than half of engineering graduates go into engineering

A report published by the Royal Academy of Engineering shows that fewer than half of engineering graduates go into professional engineering jobs. The research in Pathways to success in engineering degrees and careers also shows that students who study engineering at post-1992 universities are just as likely to get professional engineering jobs as those from Russell Group and other pre-1992 universities. In some cases, post-1992 students are, in fact, more likely to take up good engineering jobs.

Nanorobots could swim through blood to deliver drugs

Nanorobots could swim through blood to deliver drugs
Someday, treating patients with nanorobots could become standard practice to deliver medicine specifically to parts of the body affected by disease. However, merely injecting drug-loaded nanoparticles might not always be enough to get them where they need to go. In the ACS journal, Nano Letters, scientists are reporting the development of new nanoswimmers that can move easily through body fluids to their targets.
