Manufacturing and engineering owe electricity and magnetism

Michael Faraday was a British physicist who contributed to many of important findings for electromagnetic phenomena.

His family was challenged economically, but his siblings and religious belief supported him. In his childhood, he was interested in doing experiments by reading science books.

The turning point of his life came when he audited Humphry Davy’s science lecture. Then, Michael Faraday became his assistant. After a while, Davy found that Faraday had a talent in performing experiments. Faraday was genuinely devoted to finding out electricity in his life.

Now, we are using electricity everyday in our lives, and it becomes indispensable. Without knowing the fundamental theory, we don’t even manufacture cars, airplanes, and a lot of other products.

On the other hand, if we apply such knowledge to what we make, we may be able to create innovative products.

History suggests that the combination between engineering and science changes our life styles and concepts.
