What is engineering?

November - 18 - 2011

Engineering is the art of applying all the knowledge we know so far. The persons who interfere with this specific work are the engineers. The first time when the term of engineering has been mentioned was back in the 1325, so this whole process dates back from that time and goes straight to the modern era. You can find the engineering anywhere – from science, to art and medicine.

Engineers are usually looking for a way to resolve a specific problem, which is next submitted to get real answers and solves. In this case, the engineers have established the CAD (computer-aided design) with which they are able to create 2D and 3D models for their designs. In this case, we get more and more useful products and also, more expensive. Usually, engineers are predisposed to make predictions about how the model will look like, what its dimensions will be and what materials are going to be used to realize a specific design; they are able to get these information thanks to their scale models, simulations and stress tests. These tests will ensure the buyer that the product will provide him the expected effect.

Engineering usually has four main branches, which are: chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Though, sometimes new specialties combine with the traditional ones and form new branches. This will provide extra protection for any domain and also, new technology which is needed day by day. As the world goes by, the technology and the engineering needs to have the same effect. The first search engine was built in 1990 by the computer engine Alan Emtage.

Engineering have had a major impact on science, as far as science have had a major impact on engineering. Scientists always interfere with the engineering art, when completing engineering tasks such as designing apparatus or prototypes. Engineers must take into account safety, economy and constructability as well as legal consideration in the case of failure of the solutions. In this case, if you opt for an engineering job, you need to take into account the fact that you will always have a big responsibility on your shoulders and a good knowledge on the designers and prototypes you may interfere with. This job is all about creativity combined with ability. In this case, you should go and make an exercise of imagination as you being an engineer. So, how it feels like?
