Hello everyone , today’s session is related to Engineering . In this session , i’m going to explore Engineering , Engineers and their works .
We all are in the advanced nations, live in a largely man-made world.Everything that you use in day to day life like your smartphone , car,laptop are all products of the engineering enterprise. We are surrounded by engineering practically every moment of our lives so what is the exact definition of engineering ?
What is Engineering ?
Engineering is a scientific field and job that involves taking our scientific understanding of the natural world and using it to invent , design, and build things to solve problems and achieve practical goals.This can include the development machines , road,tools , processes , cars , bridges and computers. In other words we can say engineering is acknowledged as a discipline that opens up opportunities and creates technology and products that help make our lives easier. Engineers are shaping the future by applying their skills to almost everything you can think of from medicine to renewable energy , food technologies to sustainable mining , there really is no limit what engineers can do .
History of Engineering :
History of engineering is the concept of engineering existed since ancient times as humans devised fundamental inventions such as the pulley lever and wheel.Each of these inventions is consistent with the the modern definition of engineering.The word engineer has its root in the engine which comes from the latin word “ingenium” which means innate quality particularly of mental power and thus the word engineer emerged as a person who creates nifty and practical inventions.
Branches of engineering—
today in the field of engineering offers more career choices than any other discipline . In the past there were only four major branches which includes mechanical , civil , chemical and electrical. however , since the human race has been swifty advancing with regards to technology new branches of engineering are being developed . Engineering jobs can now also be found widely in the computer engineering, software engineering , nanotechnology , mathematics and many more .
What do engineer do ?
The field of engineering is so vast that is very hard to define exactly what an engineer does. Yes , engineers still build skyscrapers , design machinery , develop software and oversee public works but that’s only the beginning . They also address society’s needs and problems on a number of other scales with a unique blend of technology and science.
Work Environment :
The workspace of an engineer depends on the type of engineer , their actual job description and the company they work for . Many engineers work in the office environment. ,some engineers work in industrial plants , others may spend time outdoors at construction sites and more engineers travel extensively to plants or work sites here and abroad.Many engineers work from home.
