The Future is Boundless
by Biomedical Engineering Society - University of California, San Diego
The purpose of our video is to show the true beauty and power of engineering, and through it we hope to inspire others to pursue engineering while making the most of it. The future is boundless and engineering is the tool for redefining bounds. Engineering has let us accomplish all this by breaking the linear trend -- innovating, optimizing, and allowing technology to develop at an exponential rate.
