Engineering and Engineering Trades

What’s It About ?

Engineering is the study of the design, composition, manufacture, maintenance and functioning of machines, products, systems and structures. Engineers convert scientific knowledge into technology that is used in the design and production of useful products and services.

Engineering is the practical application of science and math to solve problems. Engineers design, evaluate, develop, test, modify, install, inspect and maintain a wide variety of products and systems that is found all around us. Engineering technologies improve the ways that we communicate, live, work, travel, stay healthy, and entertain ourselves. The field of engineering is broad and can be divided into several sub-fields.
