Bachelor of Engineering

A Bachelor of Engineering is a first professional undergraduate academic degree awarded to a student after three to five years of studying engineering at an accredited university. In the UK, a B. Eng. degree will be accredited by one of the Engineering Council's professional engineering institutions as suitable for registration as an incorporated engineer or chartered engineer with further study to masters level. In Canada, the degree from a Canadian university can be accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Alternatively, it might be accredited directly by another professional engineering institution, such as the US-based Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; the B. Eng. Contributes to the route to chartered engineer, registered engineer or licensed professional engineer and has been approved by representatives of the profession. A B. E. has a greater emphasis on math and science, to allow the engineers to move from one discipline to another. Multi-discipline is required like Marine Engineering.

The marine engineer is required to know mechanical and electric engineering. If an engineer is staying in a single discipline, he/she would be better served with a B. Sc. A typical B. Sc. is 128 credits. SUNY Maritime B. E. is 172 credits. Most universities in the United States and Europe award the Bachelor of Science Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering Science, Bachelor of Science in Engineering or Bachelor of Applied Science degree to undergraduate students of engineering study. For example, Canada is the only country that awards the B. A. Sc. degree for graduating engineers. Other institutions award engineering degrees specific to the area of study, such as B. S. E. E. and BSME. In French-speaking Canada Québec, the Bachelor of Engineering is referred to as B. Ing. A less common and the oldest variety of the degree in the English-speaking world, is Baccalaureus in Arte Ingeniaria, a Latin name meaning Bachelor in the Art of Engineering. Here Baccalaureus in Arte Ingeniaria implies an excellence in carrying out the'art' or'function' of an engineer.

The degree is awarded by the University of Dublin and by the constituent universities of the National University of Ireland, but in everyday speech it is more referred to as Bachelor of Engineering and the N. U. I. Graduates use the post-nominals translated into English, B. E. though the actual degree and its parchment is in Latin. Some South African Universities refer to their engineering degrees as B. Ing.. A Bachelor of Engineering degree will be undertaken in one field of engineering, sometimes noted in the degree postnominals, as in BE or BEng. Common fields for the Bachelor of Engineering degree include the following fields: Aerospace Engineering Agricultural Engineering Automotive Engineering Biological Engineering — including Biochemical, Biomedical and Biomolecular Chemical Engineering — deals with the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms Clean Technology — use energy and raw materials and other inputs more efficiently and productively. Create less waste or toxicity and deliver equal or superior performance.

Sutagao people

The Sutagao are the Chibcha-speaking indigenous people from the region of Fusagasugá, Bogotá savanna, Colombia. Knowledge about the Sutagao has been provided by scholar Lucas Fernández de Piedrahita; the name Sutagao is derived from the Chibcha words Suá. The Sutagao was a small indigenous group that lived between the Sumapaz Páramo and the Pasca River. Before the Spanish conquest, the Sutagao were in conflict with the Muisca to the northeast. Zipa Saguamanchica conquered the Sutagao around 1470 when the cacique of the Sutagao lost the Battle of Pasca. Conquistador Hernán Pérez de Quesada, brother of Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada submitted the Sutagao to the new rule of the New Kingdom of Granada; the Sutagao inhabited the region until a new town was founded by Bernardino Albornoz between 5 and 13 February in 1592. During the visit of Miguel de Ibarra there were 759 indigenous people residing in Fusagasugá; when Aróstequi arrived in February 1760, the indigenous population had dwindled to 85, there were 644 new settlers divided among 109 families.

Voivod (band)

Voivod is a Canadian heavy metal band from Jonquière, Quebec. The band's current line-up consists of Denis "Snake" Bélanger, Daniel "Chewy" Mongrain, Dominic "Rocky" Laroche and Michel "Away" Langevin, their musical style has changed several times since the band's origin in the early 1980s. Starting out as a speed metal band, Voivod have added a mix of progressive metal and thrash metal to create their own unique metal style, they are credited as one of the "big four" Canadian thrash metal bands, along with Sacrifice and Annihilator. Since 1982, when it was co-founded by guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour, Voivod have released fourteen studio albums, as well as one EP, one live album, two compilations, seven demos and one DVD featuring a live concert; the band found mainstream success in the late 1980s with their fifth studio album Nothingface, Voivod's only album to enter the Billboard 200 charts, peaking at number 114. The band won the "Visionary" award at the 2017 Progressive Music Awards. Voivod's most recent studio album, The Wake, was released in September 2018.

The album won a Juno Award for Heavy Metal Album of the Year. Voivod was formed in 1982 in Jonquière, Canada. Influenced by the new wave of British heavy metal, the burgeoning hardcore punk scene and 1970s progressive rock, Voivod forged a distinctive brand of heavy music that relied on lyrical themes such as Reagan-era Cold War politics, post-apocalyptic literature and science fiction. Killing Technology began the band's evolution in earnest, with the character from Voivod's album covers being depicted in a spaceship. Drawing more on hardcore punk than metal influences by this point, Voivod began evolving without the aid of increasing speed and storytelling on the following Dimension Hatross. Voivod was one of the first thrash bands from Canada to gain popularity outside of their country's borders, reaching the peak of their global popularity with the 1989 album Nothingface which featured a cover version of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine". Other covers include Pink Floyd's "The Nile Song" on their 1993 album The Outer Limits and "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson on Phobos.

Much of the band's sound comes from guitarist Piggy's use of dissonant chords played in the high register of the guitar, used extensively on Nothingface. Albums like Dimension Hatröss are dominated by unexpected time signatures and guitarist Piggy's liberal use of dissonant, unconventional minor chords. Two of the four founding members left Voivod in the early 1990s. Jean-Yves co-founded The Holy Body Tattoo an avant-garde modern dance company base in Vancouver BC and wrote extensively all the music for it, as well as other electronic music projects, while Denis Belanger isolated himself and started a new project, Union Made. Meanwhile, the band recorded four albums as a trio in the mid-to-late 1990s with new member Eric Forrest, nicknamed "E-Force", handling both vocals and bass guitar. Forrest was injured in a car accident in Germany in 1998, that incarnation of Voivod never regained the momentum they lost during his rehabilitation. After Eric Forrest left the band, his insurance company attempted to sue the band for the injuries he sustained in the crash, as he was in the care of the band at the time.

Voivod disbanded in 2001 before Bélanger returned to the band. The next incarnation of Voivod featured three of the four founding members: Denis Bélanger, Denis D'Amour, Michel Langevin along with Jason Newsted on bass guitar. Guitarist Denis D'Amour died at the age of 45 on 26 August 2005 due to complications from colon cancer. Soon after they released Katorz, in July 2006; the album is based around riffs found on the laptop of guitarist Denis D'Amour. Just prior to his death, he left instructions for his bandmates on. In November 2006, the song "X-Stream" was featured on Guitar Hero II. Voivod were planning to work on what was to be their final studio album in late 2007, which contained tracks recorded with D'Amour before his death. Voivod was part of the Heavy MTL show, held in Montreal on the 22nd of June, 2008. Voivod performed at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Calgary, Canada on 26 July 2008, supported Judas Priest at the Bell Center, Canada on 12 August 2008. Voivod played a full set at Thrash Domination in Kawasaki, Japan, 20–21 September 2008, along with the bands Testament and Forbidden.

The band consisted of Bélanger, Langevin, a returning'Blacky' Thériault, Dan Mongrain on guitar. In early January 2009, Voivod announced that they were putting the finishing touches on their new album and expected to release it in the spring of that year; the album, now known as Infini, was released on June 23, 2009. By July 2010, Voivod had been recording new music. On July 4, 2012, Voivod announced the title of their thirteenth studio album, Target Earth, released on January 22, 2013. Target Earth has a more progressive sound than some of their last few albums, is a return to a more "classic" Voivod sound that can be heard on Dimension Hatross and Nothingface. All the music was written by Blacky and Chewy, while Snake focused on lyrics, Away took care of the artwork. On July 10, 2014, it was reported, it was announced. For months he requested meetings regarding the band business and artistic affairs

Lubomirski Palace, Lviv

The Lviv palace of Prince Stanisław Lubomirski was built in the 1760s to Jan de Witte's design on the site of several older houses. The palace's main façade, featuring decoration by Sebastian Vessinger, is on the Market Square; the two other fronts are less conspicuous. Between 1771 and 1821, the Lubomirski Palace served as the residence for Austrian governors of Galicia, it was purchased by a Ukrainian organization, Prosvita, in the 19th century and subsequently became a hotbed of nationalist activities. It was there that Yaroslav Stetsko proclaimed Ukraine's independence several days after Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union. Next door to the Lubomirski Palace is the former palace of the Roman Catholic archbishops where King Michał Korybut Wiśniowiecki died in 1673. Вуйцик В. С. Липка Р. М. Зустріч зі Львовом.
