What do Scotty on the Starship Enterprise, Neil Armstrong, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Bill Nye all have in common? They're all engineers! Engineers are capable of doing some amazing things: they solve problems in society that might seem impossible at first, like designing and building the first suspension bridge, assembling the equipment to put man on the moon, or creating the steam engine. In fact, that's where the word 'engineer' comes from: engineers are the individuals responsible for building everything from the steam engine to the engine in your car. But, what exactly is engineering?
Engineering is a scientific field and job that involves taking our scientific understanding of the natural world and using it to invent, design, and build things to solve problems and achieve practical goals. This can include the development of roads, bridges, cars, planes, machines, tools, processes, and computers. The things engineers build are called technology. Without technology, the modern world simply wouldn't exist. We're surrounded by the work of engineers practically every moment of our lives.
