What is engineering?
Engineering is the application of science
and math to design or manufacture something
that benefits society. This can include
structures, machines, processes, and systems.
For example, engineers help build bridges,
buildings, computers, appliances, power plants,
and transportation systems.
What makes a good engineer? In 1955, N. W. Dougherty, a Professor
in Civil Engineering at the University of Tennessee, said...the ideal engineer is a composite, not a scientist, not a mathematician, not a sociologist or a writer; but
uses the knowledge and techniques of any or all of these disciplines in solving engineering problems.
