Student Day competition report

Engineering solutions are badly needed to counter the violence of terrorists as well as the destructiveness of earthquakes, hurricanes, disease epidemics and other natural dangers. Technologies for early detection of all such threats, and rapid deployment of countermeasures, are urgently needed. While it may not be as life-threatening, reducing vulnerability to assaults in cyberspace such as identity theft and computer viruses designed to disrupt Internet traffic are important to maintaining quality of life in the modern world.
