11 Science is about what is, Engineering is about what can be. - Neil Armstrong

12 The process of producing a technical product or system to meet a specific need. Engineering is derived from the Latin word Ingenium meaning the use of talent, native ability, genius, cleverness as in Ingenuity.. The art of applying scientific & mathematical principles, experience, judgement, and common sense to make systems/devices that benefit society.

13 This may sound confusing but all it really means is that Engineering is just using the principals of the Sciences to develop a product or system the best way possible.

14 A Professional Engineer is someone who has demonstrated their competence in a specific field, and has been licensed by a recognized Association of Professional Engineers. Not all Engineers are hardhat wearing industrialists, train drivers, bridge-builders or nerds. Many Engineers are politicians, doctors, lawyers, professors, business people, volunteers, etc…

15 Industrious, Studious, Responsible Be able to work hard and meet dead lines in life, work, and school. Imaginative To be able to see what may be. Communicative One of the most important abilities of a Professional Engineer. Just having the best idea is not enough, you have to be able to convey your message to others. The most important ability for a Professional Engineer is to be able to adapt. The most important ability for a Professional Engineer is to be able to adapt. Determination Work hard and not give up in the face of failures. An ability to work: with mathematics with the natural sciences Physics, Chemistry, Biology with computers as part of a team curious curious imaginative imaginative intelligent intelligent creative creative industrious industrious studious studious responsible responsible communicative communicative determination determination –Personal Traits These are some traits that are very helpful for an Engineer Curious Wondering why or how something works the way it does. Creative To be able to conceive something new from what you know or have into something new or better. Intelligent Intelligence is not just getting 85% and 90% in highschool. It is the ability to use commonsense, not just book smart.
