Engineering integrates the domains of science and mathematics to find the solutions to real world problems, thus improving the world around us. One key factor which makes an engineer stand out is his ability to implement ideas in a cost effective and practical approach. Possessing the ability to develop a thought, or abstract idea, and translate it into reality is a skill which differentiates an engineer from the other occupations. Without engineers, the things we use in our everyday life such as vehicles, roads, bridges, buildings, computers and other electronic devices, will not exist.
