Software Engineers are the brains behind the computer screen.
“Engineering (from Latin ingenium, meaning “cleverness” and ingeniare, meaning “to contrive, devise”) is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to invent, design, build, maintain, and improve structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes.
The discipline of engineering is extremely broad, and encompasses a range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of applied science, technology and types of application.”
Well put crowd sourced mega brain!
Check out our breakdowns of the Fields of Engineering.
A nuclear engineer researches and develops new applications for nuclear energy and radiation.
Mechanical Engineers apply physics and mathematics to design, develop, build, and test mechanical systems.
Material engineers work with the properties of matter to create solutions to real world problems.
Industrial engineers, sometimes known as the efficiency people, work to make sure industries and organizations are operating at maximum efficiency and safety.
Environmental Engineering is the integration of engineering and problem solving to improve the natural environment and to protect our natural resources.
