What is Engineering?
Engineers use their imagination and analytical skills to invent, design, and build things that matter. They are team players with independent minds who ask, "How can we develop a better recycling system to protect the environment, design a school that can withstand an earthquake, or create cutting-edge special effects for the movies?" By dreaming up creative and practical solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time. From www.engineeryourlife.org
