What is Engineering

Engineers harness the laws of nature to

produce devices, systems, and structures

that perform tasks, meet human needs,

or solve problems

ENGR 1201 – Intro to Engineering Slide 5 Professor Starr

 

 

What is Engineering

“Engineering is the practical means by which our greatest challenges will be solved… environment…, poverty… health and wellbeing. We engineers are trained and practiced at looking in two directions at once – both at science and at business and commerce – and integrating them to find an optimal solution… Those who wish to make a difference to the world should, I suggest, become engineers.” (Browne, IET Catalyst, 2007)
