What is engineering and what do engineers do?
  • Engineering has been defined in many ways. It is
    often referred to as the "application of science"
    because engineers take abstract ideas and build
    tangible products from them. Another definition
    is "design under constraint," because to
    "engineer" a product means to construct it in
    such a way that it will do exactly what you want
    it to, without any unexpected consequences.
  • Engineers are men and women who create new
    products. It is estimated that there are over 2
    million practicing engineers in the United
    States. They work in fields such as biomedicine,
    energy, automotive, aerospace, computers, and
    many others that require people to create
    products that didn't exist before.

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Computer Science
  • Computer scientists analyze and evaluate software
    systems and the underlying abstractions upon
    which they are based.
  • They design and implement software systems which
    are state of the art solutions to a variety of
    computing problems this includes problems which
    are sufficiently complex to require the
    evaluation of design alternatives and engineering

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer engineers design and implement computer
    systems, both hardware and software, which are
    state of the art solutions to a variety of
    computing problems. This includes systems which
    have both a hardware and a software component,
    whose design requires a well defined interface
    between the two, and the evaluation of the
    associated trade-offs.

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electrical engineers are concerned with signals
    and systems, computers, electronics (both analog
    and digital), and semiconductor devices.
  • Students are required to develop depth in at
    least one of the following technical areas
    electromagnetics, signals and systems, solid
    state, computer hardware, computer software,
    control, and circuits.

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Systems and Control Engineering
  • Systems and control engineering involves designs
    complex technological and non-technological
  • Problems relating to modeling, decision-making,
    control, and optimization are studied.
  • Some examples of systems problems which are
    studied include modeling and analysis of complex
    biological systems, computer control of
    industrial plants, developing world models for
    studying environmental policies, and optimal
    planning and management in large-scale systems.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Mechanical engineers design, analyze, develop,
    manufacture and use machines that convert and
    transmit energy, and which apply energy to the
    completion of operations beneficial to mankind.
    Examples include devices for power generation,
    automobiles, airplanes, agricultural machines,
    and refrigeration air conditioning.
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Once considered a subdiscipline of mechanical
    engineering, aerospace engineering has come into
    its own. Aerospace engineers design optimum
    aerodynamics of various sub- and supersonic
    aircraft, create more efficient and more reliable
    propulsion systems, and solve problems posed by
    craft that must pass into and out of the Earth's

Chemical Engineering
  • Traditionally, chemical engineers are responsible
    for design and control of large-scale chemical
    plants for the production of basic chemicals,
    plastics, and fibers.
  • Today's chemical engineers are also involved in
    food and fertilizer production, synthesis of
    electronic materials, development of chemical and
    biochemical sensors, waste recycling, and power
    generation, including fuel cells.
  • Chemical engineers also develop new materials
    (ceramic composites and electronic materials, for
    example) as well as biochemicals and

Materials Science and Engineering
  • Materials Science and Engineering extends from
    the basic science of materials internal structure
    to design evaluation of materials.
  • The role of the materials engineer is to
    understand the science of why materials behave as
    they do under various conditions recognize the
    limits of performance that particular materials
    can attain and to know what can be done during
    manufacture of materials to meet the demands of a
    given application.
  • Materials engineers work to develop new
    applications of existing materials, new methods
    of manufacture of materials, and develop new
    classes of materials.

Macromolecular Science and Engineering
  • Macromolecular Scientists and Engineers develop
    the newest polymeric materials, which are
    changing the face of our society.
  • These giant molecules are the basis of synthetic
    materials including plastics, fibers, rubber,
    films, paints, membranes, and adhesives.
  • Polymers are the key components of plastics and
    fibers, packaging materials, coatings, adhesives,
    and sealants. New generations of functional
    polymers are enabling revolutionary advances in
    electronic and photonic sensors and devices, fuel
    cells and batteries, and bioprosthetic and drug
    delivery devices.
