WHAT IS ENGINEERING..............?
"Engineering is the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize, economically, the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.”
Engineering is a profession that aspires to high standards of conduct and recognizes its responsibility to the general public.
Scientist - Like an engineer, but a primary goal is the expansion of knowledge and understanding physical processes.
Engineer- Applies knowledge of mathematics and the physical sciences to the efficient design and construction of usable devices, structures and processes.
To ‘engineer’ literally means to “make things happen”. Engineering is about the design and production of useful products and services. Engineering know-how converts scientific knowledge into technology and then technology into successful innovation. Many seemingly simple aspects of our daily lives have been conceptualised, designed and developed by an engineer.
