Engineering is a systematic enterprise of the application of science to the needs of humanity. Engineering is concerned with the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to design, build, and maintain structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes. It may encompass using insights to conceive, model and scale an appropriate solution to a problem or objective. The discipline of engineering is extremely broad, and encompasses a range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of technology and types of application. Engineering has a close relationship with science, and they are often considered in tandem with eachother.
