People working in the field of engineering and related technical fields “bridge the gap” between scientific principles and the application of these principles to the needs of society. An engineer uses experience and judgment, as well as advanced training in engineering, science, and mathematics, to formulate ideas and designs, and to determine standards, specifications, work orders and schedules so that projects can be economically beneficial to mankind. Engineering offers diverse and exciting job opportunities for people with mathematical, scientific, and technical skills.
