Discipline summary

Engineering is the study and application of scientific, mathematical, economic and social principles to build and operate structures, machines, devices, systems and processes. Engineering is an exercise in creative design that seeks to enhance people’s lives by making materials, energy and other resources available through nature more productive and useful. It requires a technical understanding of how things function, so as to predict behavior and make improvements going forward. Engineering is simultaneously considered an art form, an academic discipline and a technical profession and it requires expertise in a broad range of expressive media, academic disciplines and practical fields.
