What is engineering?
Engineers are changing
the world all of the time.
They dream up creative,
practical solutions and
work with teams of
smart, inspiring people
to invent, design, and
create things that
matter.
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.
