Reaching into the stratosphere of education and research Academics are transforming the world in the era of computing as science pushes the limits of research and development. The new frontiers in people-oriented inventions are delivering an unparalleled level of applications that are making the global population empowered to collaborate and cooperate. Consequently, what we are witnessing is a bridging of the barriers that divide people into the developed world, emerging economies, dark continents and third worlds. What was once a very small range of subjects and specialisations such as civil, mechanical and electronic engineering are now expanding into innumerable areas of focus with each possessing the power to rejuvenate various aspects of the lives of people. Looking at courses on offer by Newcastle University, one gets an idea of the extraordinary range of subjects that academia is now pursuing and delivering to students. The field of chemistry has courses such as Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry. Computer Science has now branched into a study of Security and Resilience while Environmental Sciences are now studied with a focus on Ecosystem Management and Environmental Geochemistry. Genetics has emerged as a separate field of study with courses such as Biomedical Genetics. Another emerging study area is Geomatics. Research is being carried out in innumerable disciplines with cutting edge technologies such as Bacterial Cell Biology, Brain Ageing and Vitality, Cellular Medicine, Cell and Molecular Biosciences, Chemical Nanoscience, Cloud Computing, Concurrent Asynchronous Systems, Digital Interaction, Emerging Technology and Materials, Geospatial Engineering, Integrative Bioinformatics, Mitochondrial Genetics and Disease, Mobile Computing, Neurodegenerative Diseases and Stroke, Psychiatric Neuroscience and Water Resources Engineering.

Each of these and the numerous other courses are going deep into problems and challenges faced by people and by the world and are constantly adding to the data that is now becoming the wealth of the planet. Storage of data has now made such a big leap into the future that the people in the forthcoming centuries will have an amazing reservoir of foundational data unlike the present generation which is also looking into the past with the same quest as that is being done with the future. Unlike the past, everything is available to anybody interested in digging through the volumes of data. The internet has ushered in an age of transparency that is turning the world into a flat place where every citizen is equally informed. The pursuit of academic excellence has moved from the high-brow corridors into the computers of all citizens with a connection to the internet. The university population living in the north-east has many choices that are tailored to Student accommodation Newcastle. For under ÂŁ200 per person per week, the student gets accommodation that is warm and cost through the year with all the appliances needed to improve time management which is essential as they juggle with the demands of the university routine. Students who can afford higher rents can take accommodation that is very close to transport facilities, the city centre and the university itself. Options for a quick trip to the surrounding areas give students the opportunity to have outings when they feel the need for a break from the tight schedules of the university.
