Return to: Computer Science and Engineering
Engineering is the creative application of scientific principles to the design, development, construction or operation of structures, machines, apparatus, manufacturing processes or works-using them singly or in combination.
Engineering transforms scientific discoveries into products that improve the way the world works and that make our lives safer, healthier and more productive. Engineering is an attractive career option for those who enjoy building or repairing items or designing new products, games or tools. Industry demand is high, with job prospects in branches of engineering continuing to grow. Civil, environmental, biomedical and software specialties are leading the pack. An additional draw is reflected in surveys that consistently indicate engineers enjoy high levels of job satisfaction.
