The role and impact of technology in both our personal and working lives is ever growing. Technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a preexisting solution to a problem, achieve a goal, or perform a specific function. It can also refer to the collection of such tools, including machinery, modifications, arrangements and procedures. Careers in technology revolve around every single thing you see around you, making it a universally applicable and ever evolving career. Today’s global market has contributed to significant advancements in the areas of science and technology. The demand for innovative products and designs has led to new challenges in manufacturing. Engineers and technicians must address future manufacturing needs in order to integrate material properties and processing technologies. Adaptation and innovation are at the heart of technology.
