And yes, I know that math & science may

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.
