Engineering and Technology

In Estonia the area of engineering and technology sees significant scientific attention reserved for the material sciences, textile technology, electronics, robotics and a host of other fields.

There’s a remarkable amount of scientific support behind the nanofiber fabric. Estonian scientists have developed a unique method of electrospinning, which will make it possible to produce large quantities of nanofiber in the future. Nanofiber fabric is thinner than a hair’s breadth, which may consist of hundreds of fibers. It’s used in medicine and electronics, but may also revolutionise the clothing industry in the coming decades.

At the same time a significant amount of research is being done in another area of engineering: developing a robot that copies the shape and motions of a fish. The objective behind that development is to understand how fish interact with their environment and how water flow could be used to save energy.
