Engineering is the art of applying scientific and mathematical principles, experience, judgment, and common sense to make things that benefit people. Engineers design products such as cars, computers, medical equipment, bridges, and robots as well as processes and systems for manufacturing, the clean-up of toxic spills, mass transit, and communications.
