“Engineering is the art of applying science, mathematics, and creativity to solve technological problems. The accomplishments of engineering can be seen in nearly every aspect of our daily lives, from transportation to communications, and entertainment to health care. And, although each of these applications is unique, the process of engineering is largely independent. This process begins by carefully analyzing a problem, intelligently designing a solution for that problem, and efficiently transforming that design solution into physical reality.”
