Description

The term "engineering" encompasses quite an extensive overall picture. Until recently it meant a learning field where the purpose was to make things. It has, in the ongoing effort to make better quality things for people at lower cost, given us roads, buildings, automobiles, an infinite variety of machines, computers, semiconductors, fabrics, chemicals and countless other things. Further developments and improvements are still being made in each of the subfields of engineering, electric devices, machinery, construction and so on. Engineering has evolved from a science that merely creates things into one that creates value, solves problems that society faces, and creates things for those purposes. Where does engineering go from here? This text attempts to answer this question. In doing so, it delves into accomplishments that go beyond the concept of "fields" in engineering, and combines a number of these to create new fields.show more
